Application Note: Analysis of High-Alloyed Steel by HR ICP-OES on PlasmaQuant® PQ 9000
2 July 2015

This application note illustrates the quantification of trace elements like phosphorus, aluminium and boron in high-alloyed steel using the PlasmaQuant® PQ 9000 by Analytik Jena. Trace amounts of additives or impurities can have a large influence of the properties of high-alloyed steel, but analysis of them is difficult as their spectra can have severe spectral interferences. The PlasmaQuant® PQ 9000 allows for more accurate trace analysis with high sensitivity.
