    Abstract

    This interlaboratory study examined the application of inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (U.S. EPA Method 6010) for the determination of 23 elements in 7 solid wastes. The solid samples were digested using a nitric acid — hydrogen peroxide procedure (U.S. EPA Method 3050). The study design allowed the variability of sample preparation to be distinguished from the measurement variability. Precision and accuracy data are presented and discussed. Data obtained by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission are compared with data obtained by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Results obtained with and without the method of standard additions are subjected to statistical comparison.
