Abstract

Spectroscopic interferences are probably the largest class of interferences in ICP-MS and are caused by atomic or molecular ions that have the same mass-to-charge as analytes of interest. Current ICP-MS instrumental software corrects for all known atomic “isobaric” interferences, or those caused by overlapping isotopes of different elements, but does not correct for most polyatomic interferences. Such interferences are caused by polyatomic ions that are formed from precursors having numerous sources, such as the sample matrix, reagents used for preparation, plasma gases, and entrained atmospheric gases.
