Study of the Interference effects of Aluminium on the Atom- And Ion-Lines of Alkaline Earth Metals in Aqueous Solutions Using an ICP Spectrometer with Axially Viewed Plasma

Open access


The main advantage of inductively coupled plasma spectrometers with axially viewed plasma relative to the radially viewed plasma is the better detection power. The detection limits of the former are about 5-10 times lower than the latter. On the other hand, the axially viewed plasma has disadvantages. The most notable is the increased number of interference effects. In this paper, the study of the interference effects of aluminium on the atom- and ion-lines of alkaline earth metals are presented by examining different types of sample-introduction devices, such as a simple Meinhart-type concentric nebuliser, a V-groove nebuliser using a Sturman-Masters spray chamber, and an ultrasonic nebuliser
