Determination of Cadmium by ICP-MS in Samples Containing High Concentrations of Molybdenum and Tin
Steven J. Christopher, R. Q. Thompson
A four-step matrix reduction procedure, beginning with thiourea-based SPE, was developed for the ICP-MS determination of cadmium in difficult sample matrixes. The separation scheme reduced the concentrations of tin and molybdenum, significant spectral interference sources for cadmium, from mg/kg levels to μg/kg and sub-μg/kg levels respectively, making possible interference-free measurement of 111Cd and 113Cd and facilitating isotope dilution quantification. Cadmium recovery through the full procedure was 78%. Accuracy was shown by application to NIST SRMs 1568a Rice Flour and 2703 Marine Sediment. Method robustness was demonstrated by analysis of a multivitamin tablet containing high relative concentrations of Mo and Sn.
