  • Producing SI traceable reference values for Cd, Cr and Pb amount contents in polyethylene samples from the Polymer Elemental Reference Material project using isotope dilution mass spectrometry


The present paper describes the certification of cadmium, chromium and lead amount contents in two different polyethylene-materials within the third phase of the Polyethylene Elemental Reference Material Project. The analytical procedure to establish the reference values for Cd, Cr and Pb amount contents is based on Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry used as a primary method of measurement.
