Abstract

This is the second iteration of this review covering developments in ‘Atomic Spectrometry’. It covers atomic emission, absorption, fluorescence and mass spectrometry, but excludes material on speciation and coupled techniques which is included in a separate review. It should be read in conjunction with the other related reviews in the series.1-5 A critical approach to the selection of material has been adopted, with only novel developments in instrumentation, techniques and methodology being included. The major growth areas in evidence were the use of MC-ICP-MS as the method of choice for isotope ratio analyses, and new applications of AMS. The decline in the number of fundamental studies and developments in chemometrics continued. Some novel instrumental methods, such as the portable liquid electrode plasma, were reported and there were many new applications of solid phase extractants for on-line sample pretreatment, particularly using carbon nanotubes.
