Agilent Technologies publishes Handbook of Hyphenated ICP-MS Applications
This handbook is a collection of application briefs contributed by world wide authorities, covering a wide range of applications of hyphenated ICP-MS in elemental speciation.
Hyphenated techniques involving ICP-MS are among the fastest growing research and application areas in atomic spectroscopy. This is because, by itself, ICP-MS does not give information on the chemical or structural form of the analytes present (since all forms of the analytes are converted to positively charged atomic ions in the plasma). However, as an excellent elemental analyzer, it also performs as a superb detector for chromatography. Hyphenated ICP-MS is achieved through the coupling of the ICP-MS to a separation technique–normally a chromatographic separation. In this way, target analytes are separated into their constituent chemical forms or oxidation states before elemental analysis. The most common separation techniques are gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which includes ion chromatography (IC), but, other separation techniques such as capillary electrophoresis (CE) and field flow fractionation (FFF), are also used.
