The potential role of isotope dilution (ID) in the future organisation of traceability and comparability of chemical measurements is described. It is essential that in isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS): (i) measurements are in SI units (moles); (ii) results are matrix-independent; (iii) complicated chemical measurements are reduced to simple physical measurements. The report also discusses the need for enriched isotopes, carefully evaluated measurement procedures and high quality (cheaper) instrumentation.
