Brine Analysis by HR ICP-OES on PlasmaQuant® PQ 9000
14 April 2015

In this application note, synthetic brine solutions with nominal salt contents of 10 % and 24 %, as well as a saturated solution, were used for long-term continuous aspiration tests and determinations of detection limits on the PlasmaQuant® PQ 9000 equipped with Salt-Kit. Detailed system configurations for the analysis of typical major (alkali and earth alkali) and minor (heavy metals, non-metals) elements in brine or sea water samples are provided.
