A method for precise analysis of trace element/calcium ratios in carbonate samples using quadrupole inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry

Abstract:

An improved method has been developed using a quadrupole inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (Q-ICP-MS) to analyze carbonate samples for multiple trace element to calcium ratios. Problems alleviating shorter-term drift have been overcome by manipulating the instrument to bracket each trace metal measurement with a calcium measurement, while longer-term drift is corrected by bracketing each sample analysis with external matrix-matched standards, of typical foram composition. Our metho...
