Determination of Pu isotope concentrations and isotope ratio by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry: a review of analytical methodology
A number of analytical methods for Pu isotopes based on ICP-MS measurement have been developed and applied to the measurement of ultra-trace levels of Pu in nuclear fuel samples and environmental
Optical Emission Inductively Coupled Plasma in Environmental Analysis
The ability of the inductively coupled plasma-atomic (or optical) emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES (or OES))) system to perform multielement trace metal analysis of environmental samples provided
Determination of uranium, thorium and plutonium isotopes by ICP-MS
Quantitative and isotopic measurement of actinide elements is required in many circumstances in the nuclear industry. For example, determination of very low levels of these alpha emitters in human
Biomonitoring of essential and toxic elements in small biological tissues by ICP-MS
A method for trace elements (As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb, U, V and Zn) determination in small amounts of animal tissues using aerosol desolvation and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
Mass Spectrometric Determination of Transuranium Elements
Abstract Mass spectrometric techniques are playing a predominant role for the determination of transuranium elements in bulk samples as well as in microparticles. Their applications to liquid and


Determination of 236U/238U isotope ratio in contaminated environmental samples using different ICP-MS instruments
This paper considers use of the 236U isotope to monitor the spent uranium from nuclear fallout using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) in soil samples collected in the vicinity of
Ultratrace determination of uranium and plutonium by nano-volume flow injection double-focusing sector field inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (nFI–ICP-SFMS)
A sensitive analytical procedure based on nano-volume flow injection (FI) and inductively coupled plasma double-focusing sector field mass spectrometry (ICP-SFMS) was developed for the ultratrace
Determination of phosphorus in small amounts of protein samples by ICP–MS
The present work discusses the figure of merit for the determination of phosphorus in a small amount of protein sample with ICP–SFMS in comparison to ICP-QMS.
Determination of 90Sr at ultratrace levels in urine by ICP-MS
90Sr appears as a radionuclide in the decay series of nuclear fission and can therefore be found in nuclear waste or released by nuclear accidents. Current methods for the detection of this
Determination of low-abundance elements at ultra-trace levels in urine and serum by inductively coupled plasma–sector field mass spectrometry
A procedure is described for the determination of Y, Zr, Nb, Ru, Rh, Pd, Ag, Sb, Te, Hf, Ta, W, Re, Os, Ir, Pt, Au, Tl, Bi, and U in human urine and serum at concentrations relevant to the
