Abstract

Three methods for the calibration of solid sampling Zeeman atomic absorption spectrometry allowing independent calibration based on gravimetric principles (and thus usable for certification purposes) are described and intercompared: standard addition to the solid sample, use of synthetic solid matrix matching samples, and extrapolation to zero matrix. The first two methods lead to the best results; extrapolation to zero matrix is less suitable at high concentrations, but is useful where an accuracy of the order of 10 % is acceptable.
