Abstract

Recent improvements in total mercury and mercury speciation measurement capabilities at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have resulted in enhanced sensitivity, selectivity and accuracy in a wide range of matrix reference materials. In turn, these materials provide an improved traceability basis for mercury diagnostic studies in the environmental, biological, clinical and energy sectors and assist in the legislative decision making process for mercury emissions.
