Analysis of Impurities in Nickel with the Avio 550 Max ICP-OES Following London Metal Exchange Guidelines


The London Metal Exchange (LME) issues specifications for a variety of purities for different metals. This work focuses on the analysis of contaminants in nickel with PerkinElmer’s Avio® 550 Max fully simultaneous ICP optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES), using “Special Contract Rules for Primary Nickel” as a guideline for the analytes and required concentrations.
