Sensitivity improvement in ICP MS analysis of fuels and light petroleum matrices using a microflow nebulizer and heated spray chamber sample introduction.

Abstract

Reasons for signal suppression during the analysis of light petroleum matrices by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP MS) were examined. A decrease of the ionization efficiency of the plasma was found to be the principal factor responsible for this loss of sensitivity. Consequently, an interface based on a total consumption micronebulizer and… (More)
