Determination of V¡ACr¡ACu¡AZn¡ACd¡ATl and Pb in soil and sediment samples by Laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry

by Lee, Yi-Ling

Abstract (Summary)
Laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry¡]LA- ICP-MS¡^has been applied to the determination of V¡ACr¡ACu¡AZn¡ACd¡ATl and Pb in soil and sediment samples. The powder were pressed into a pellet for LA-ICP-MS analysis,Triron X-100 was used as the modifier to enhance the ion signals.The influences of instrument operating conditions ¡]laser ablation and ICP-MS¡^and pellet preparation on the ion signals were reported. For Cr determination, the ICP-MS was operated under the DRC mode which alleviated the mass overlap interference significantly. Standard addition method and isotope dilution method were used for the quantitation work. The powder sample was spiked with suitable amount of element standard and/or enriched isotope, well mixed, dried, well mixed and then pressed into a pellet for LA-ICP-MS analysis.This method has been applied to the determination of V¡ACr¡ACu¡AZn¡ACd¡ATl and Pb in NIST SRM 2709 San Joaquin soil reference materials and NIST SRM 2711 Montana soil reference materials. The analysis results were agreed with the certified values. The precision between sample replicates was better than 10% with LA-ICP-MS method. Detection limits estimated from standard addition curves were about 260-620,3-5,0.3-1 and 9-20 ng g-1 for Cr¡ACu¡AZn¡ACd¡ATl and Pb, respectively, in different samples.
