The understanding of the principles of ICP-MS and its application as an analytical technique is continually evolving and this book provides a unique snapshot of the current state-of-the-art. "Plasma Source Mass Spectrometry: The New Millennium" covers a diverse range of topics including the fate of the sample as it passes through the sample introduction system, chemical resolution using reaction and collision cells, various methods of mass analysis, approaches to account for spectral interferences, hyphenation methods to enable speciation, and the results of analyses ranging from natural waters and archaeological isotope ratios to organometallic speciation in biological materials. Describing explicitly the analytical methods that deal with current analytical challenges, and offering a current perspective on elemental analysis by plasma source mass spectrometry that is not to be found elsewhere, this book will be welcomed by both academics and industrialists as containing the most up-to-date information available on this burgeoning topic.
