The 6th Asia-Pacific Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry—a celebration of atomic spectrometry
Wei Hang, Chairman of the 2015 Asia-Pacific Winter Conference, introduces the themed issue.
Elemental fractionation and matrix effects in laser sampling based spectrometry
The present review summarizes the research work dealing with elemental fractionation and matrix effects in laser sampling approaches.
Quantitative analyses of Mn, V, and Si elements in steels using a portable laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy system based on a fiber laser
An approach of portable laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy based on a fiber laser with a background removal method was proposed.
Significant signal enhancement of dielectric barrier discharge plasma induced vapor generation by using non-ionic surfactants for determination of mercury and cadmium by atomic fluorescence spectrometry
Non-ionic surfactants (NISs) were used to improve the performance of dielectric barrier discharge plasma induced vapor generation (DBD plasma-CVG).
Chemical vapor generation from an ionic liquid using a solid reductant: determination of Hg, As and Sb by atomic fluorescence spectrometry
Generation of volatile hydrides of As and Sb and elemental mercury was accomplished in ionic liquid by using a solid reductant of LiAlH4, KBH4 or SnCl2 for sample introduction.
A dual extraction technique combined with HPLC-ICP-MS for speciation of seleno-amino acids in rice and yeast samples
MSPE combined with HF-LLLME for speciation of seleno-amino acids with high EFs and good anti-interference ability.
Dielectric barrier discharge-optical emission spectrometry for the simultaneous determination of halogens
Dielectric barrier discharge micro-plasma as a radiation source was used for the simultaneous determination of halogens by optical emission spectrometry.
Accurate determination of lithium isotope ratios by MC-ICP-MS without strict matrix-matching by using a novel washing method
With a 5% NaCl rinse solution, the Li background can be effectively reduced by a factor of 15 to 70.
