Abstract

Solid sampling Zeeman atomic absorption spectrometry (SS-ZAAS) was developed and commercialised some 10 years ago, and since that time a large number of applications have been published. In the process of production and certification of certified reference materials (CRMs), the method has never been fully accepted. SS-ZAAS is ideally suited for CRM production control purposes and constitutes an interesting source of information on the micro-constitution of candidate CRMs. In the process of certification, the major problem is the independent and absolute calibration of the method with calibrants matching the matrix of the analysis samples. For routine analyses most of the presently existing CRMs can be used for calibration purposes.
