    Abstract

    A short review of the present state of nonflame atomic absorption spectroscopy is provided. The effect of a number of matrix components on the determination of analyte elements in a constant-temperature furnace is discussed. A new method for multielement analysis is described. Components of the analytical apparatus have been used in two different ways to correct for broadband absorption and scatter. Results are reported using these two different methods of background correction with a nonflame atomizer designed by Woodriff.
