This report describes the preparation of a sediment reference material containing tributyltin (TBT) and dibutyltin (DBT). The homogeneity and stability studies and the analytical work performed for the certification of the contents of TBT (Sn(C(4)H(9))(3)(+)) and DBT (Sn(C(4)H(9))(2)(2+)) are described. The report contains all the results and gives the methods used to certify the mass fractions of tributyltin (70 ng/g as TBT cations on a dry mass basis) and dibutyltin (128 ng/g as DBT cations on a dry mass basis).
