Journal Updates: ICP-MS-based Internal Standard Method to Determine Heavy Metals in Soil

With the rapid development of the global economy, the heavy metal pollution in soil is becoming a crucial environmental problem. Industrial, traffic and municipal wastes were the primary source of heavy metal for soil. Soil, the carrier of agricultural production and important part of the ecological environment, is heavily contaminated with hazards heavy metals. 

Therefore, it is oblige to research analytical techniques that could efficiently determine the total content of heavy metals in soil. The determination of heavy metals in soil was disturbed by matrix elements or spectral interferences. Chinese scholars tried to solve this problem by an efficient ICP-MS-based internal standard method to quantify the presence of Cr,Cu, Pb,Ba,Ni,Mn in soils.
