Multielement Analysis Of Geologic Materials By Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy

The Emphasis In Geochemistry On Multi-Element Analysis Of A Variety Of Natural Materials Has Stimulated Interest In The Application Of Inductively Coupled Plasma Emission Spectroscopy (Rcp) To The Analysis Of Geologic Materials. Achievement Of The Requisite Flexibility And Capability Necessitates That Compromise Procedures And Instrument Configuration Be Used To Accommodate The Varied Requirements. A Realistic Assessment Of The Quality Of Analytical Data Must Consider The Entire Sample Preparation And Analytical Process And The Effects Of Inter-Element Interaction And Interference In The Sample Matrices Actually Encountered. Statistical Evaluation Of Determinations Made Over One Year From Replicate Samples Within And Between Analytical Sessions And From Repeated Analysis Of Reference Standard Rocks Has Permitted Estimation Of Realistic Empirical Measures Of Precision, Limits Of Quantitative Determination, And Accuracy. The Quality Of Analytical Data Is Generally Satisfactory For Most Multi-Element Geochemical Exploration Applications And For Many Petrologic Investigations. Egi Reference Number Gl04033
