Single nanoparticle analysis by ICPMS: a potential tool for bioassay
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS) has already been demonstrated as a promising technique for metallic nanoparticle tagged bioassays due to its high sensitivity, wide dynamic linear range, and more importantly multiplex and absolute quantification ability.
Atomic Spectrometry Update: review of advances in the analysis of clinical and biological materials, foods and beverages
This review discusses developments in elemental mass spectrometry, atomic absorption, emission and fluorescence, XRF and LIBS, as applied to the analysis of specimens of clinical interest, foods and beverages. Sample preparation procedures and quality assurance are also included.
Atomic spectrometry update – a review of advances in environmental analysis
This review covers advances in the analysis of air, water, plants, soils and geological materials by a range of atomic spectrometric techniques including atomic emission, absorption, fluorescence and mass spectrometry.
LIBS analyses for industrial applications – an overview of developments from 2014 to 2018
Measuring distances in the range between a few centimetres and a few metres are of special interest for automated industrial LIBS applications.
Online solid phase extraction-HPLC-ICP-MS system for mercury and methylmercury preconcentration using functionalised carbon nanotubes for their determination in dietary supplements

UV photochemical vapor generation of noble metals (Au, Ir, Pd, Pt and Rh): a feasibility study using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and seawater as a test matrix
The results originated from the application of a simple and straightforward photochemical reactor to generate volatile species from noble metals (Au, Ir, Pd, Pt and Rh) are presented.
Assessment of matrix effects associated with Fe isotope analysis using 266 nm femtosecond and 193 nm nanosecond laser ablation multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
The nature of matrix effects during in situ Fe isotope analysis using fs- and ns-laser ablation (LA) was characterized and compared.
Forensic analysis of lead–tin solder by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
Elemental concentrations in melted solder can identify the type of solder used in a crime and narrow down suspects.
Calibrating NIST SRM 683 as a new international reference standard for Zn isotopes
Zinc isotopes have been increasingly applied in cosmochemistry, geochemistry, and environmental sciences.
Determination of Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd and Pb in seawater using offline extraction and triple quadrupole ICP-MS/MS
Highly resolved temporal and spatial distributions of trace elements in ocean water can provide insight into ocean processes but carry a significant analytical demand which requires methods that combine accuracy and precision with high sample throughput.
