  • The Commissions Subcommittee for the Isotopic Composition of the Elements has carried out its biennial review of isotopic compositions, as determined by mass spectrometry and other relevant methods. This involves a critical evaluation of th


Calibration experiments were performed on a commercially available double focusing magnetic sector single collector ICPMS to evaluate its potential for accurate isotope abundance ratio measurements down to 1pg g-1 isotope amount content level. Its performance, for isotope abundance ratios varying over almost 3 orders of magnitude from ~1:1 to ~1:500, was checked using the IRMM-072 series of Isotopic Reference Materials. Routine experimental settings were applied and remained unchanged for the entire series of experiments.
