Abstract

The use of mass spectrometry with an inductive plasma source is proposed for the direct analysis of water destined for human consumption and minerals. The procedure allows 44 substances to be detected and for 19 trace elements; the data of comparisons with SRM 1643c (NIST) has confirmed the method's high degree of precision. To give an example of its application, the document provides an average profile of the trace element content of mineral water sold throughout the country.
