Standard Practice for Optimization of Instrumentation for Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

Significance and Use

4.1 This practice is for optimizing the parameters used in the determination of trace elements in metals and alloys by the graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometric method. It also describes the practice for checking the spectrometer performance. The work is expected to be performed in a properly equipped laboratory by trained operators and appropriate disposal procedures are to be followed.


1.1 This practice covers the optimization of graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometers and the checking of spectrometer performance criteria.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
