Abstract

Methods have been found which enable a commercial inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer to be used in several useful projects, despite its known susceptibility to ionization suppression and drifting of analyte signal. The optimization of instrument and measurement parameters for particular applications is discussed. The role of ultrasonic nebulization and internal standardization is;evaluated. Applications to uranium analysis, stable isotope tracing, flow injection analysis and liquid chromatographic detection are given; ('1)USDOE Report IS-T 1214. This work was performed under Contract W-7405-eng-82 with the U.S. Department of Energy.
