Sample Introduction Systems in ICPMS and ICPOES provides an in-depth analysis of sample introduction strategies, including flow injection analysis and less common techniques, such as arc/spark ablation and direct sample insertion. The book critically evaluates what has been accomplished so far, along with what can be done to extend the capabilities of the technique for analyses of any type of sample, such as aqueous, gaseous or solid. The latest progress made in fields, such as FIA, ETV, LC-ICP-MS and CE-ICP-MS is included and critically discussed. The book addresses problems related to the optimization of the system, peak dispersion and calibration and automatization.

About the Editor

Diane Beauchemin

Diane Beauchemin

Diane Beauchemin is Professor of Chemistry at Queen's University, Kingsland, Ontario, Canada. Her research efforts are focused on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS), aiming to understand the limitations of this technique to identify ways of alleviating them and to expand the range of application of ICPMS (including to speciation analysis and the determination of bio-accessibility). She is considered such an authority that she is regularly invited to write a critical fundamental review on ICPMS by Analytical Chemistry, the analytical journal with the highest impact factor. In addition to these reviews, she has authored over 90 scientific publications, including books and several book chapters. She co-edited Volume 5 of the Encyclopedia of Mass Spectrometry (Elsevier 2010). From 2003 to 2006, she was President of the Canadian Society for Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy.
