This part of ISO 16918 specifies a method for analysing steel and iron for the trace element determinations of Sn, Sb, Ce, Pb and Bi using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The method is applicable for trace elements in the mass fraction ranges (μg/g) as follows:
Sn: 5 μg/g to 200 μg/g; Sb: 1 μg/g to 200 μg/g; Ce: 10 μg/g to 1 000 μg/g; Pb: 0,5 μg/g to 100 μg/g; Bi: from 0,3 μg/g to 30 μg/g.
Interferences in the determination of trace elements using ICP-MS are listed in Annex B.
