abstract
Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) has emerged as a dominant spectroscopic technique for the determination of metals in a plethora of sample types. The bulk of the interest has been placed on trace metal analysis, and the analysis of nonmetals has been gaining increased interest since the 1980's. In this work, an inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer is used for the determination of nonmentals in different sample types. The present research covers three projects using ICP-AES to detect nonmetals by monitoring their emission in the vacuum ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
