Application of ICP-MS to the analysis of environmental particulates collected in urban areas
Experiments on the application of mass spectrometry with a plasma coupled source for the characterisation of 45 elements in urban particulates have been carried out. The reliability of the method has been verified by comparison with conventional techniques (GF-AAS, HG-AAS, ICP-AES) and by NAA in combination with radiochemical techniques. The proposed procedure has been used to analyse environmental samples in relation to monitoring of the personnel regulating motor traffic.
