Analysis of Aqueous Solutions and Water

Application Brief

Analysis of Aqueous Solutions and Water by ICP-OES With Axial Plasma Observation

Due to its multi-element determination capability, high dynamic linear range and sensitivity, inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is widely used for the analysis of aqueous solutions and water. Trace, minor, and major elements can be determined simultaneously ensuring low cost of analysis. The application is described in several ICP-OES standard procedures such as the US-EPA Method 200.7 or ISO 11885.

In this report the analysis of waters using the SPECTRO ARCOS with axial plasma observation is described. The report includes the line selection, detection limits and studies on precision and accuracy.
