ACME 1F-MS ICP-MS, aqua regia digestion (53 elements, (B dl=20ppm, Ga dl=0.2ppm, S dl=0.01%, W dl=0.1ppm))



Acme, Group 1F-MS Full Suite (53 elements) 0.5 g.  The samples were analysed using a Perkin Elmer Elan 6000 or 9000 ICP mass spectrometer.

Detection limits for three elements differed from those listed in Acme’s Price Brochure:

  • Ga detection limit: 0.2 ppm (0.1 ppm in brochure)
  • S detection limit 0.01 % (0.02% in brochure)
  • W detection limit 0.1 ppm (0.05 ppm in brochure)

 

General Methodology:

A 0.5 g sample is weighed into a test tube for sample digestion.  A modified aqua regia solution of equal parts concentrated ACS grade HCl and HNO3 and demineralized water is added to each sample (6 ml/g) to leach in a hot-water bath (~95°C) for one hour.  After cooling, the solution is made up to a final volume with 5% HCl.  Sample weight to solution volume ratio is 0.5 g per 10 ml.  The solution is aspirated into a Perkin Elmer Elan 6000 or 9000 ICP mass spectrometer.
