Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) has several attractive features compared with other analytical techniques including high sensitivity, rapid elemental analysis, wide dynamic range and isotopic information. However, when a sample which contains high matrix is introduced, polyatomic ions and isobars due to the matrix might interfere with the analytes. In order to overcome such kinds of interferences several techniques were used. In this paper a review of possible chromatographic techniques used to separate different matrices is illustrated.
