Brominated Flame Retardants – Still a Hot Topic at Dioxin 2018

In August 2018 I was fortunate to be able to attend, for the first time, the Dioxin 2018 conference in Krakow, Poland. This conference combined the 38th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) & 10th International PCB Workshop as described in a previous post by Maddalena Bonanomi. I was not only surprised by the number of chemical classes of […]

Everyone into the Pool (and Why It’s Safe to Do So)

During a recent search for a new apartment, I was presented with some sharply contrasting options. One had a balcony overlooking the carport and dumpsters, while the other had a view of umbrella-shaded tables and lounge chairs surrounding an oval shaped pool. It doesn’t take a lot of brain power to figure out which one […]

The Dark Side of the Moon: Selenium Analysis Using ICP-MS, Part 4


In part 1 of this blog post series, I covered the most notable problems encountered when analysing selenium using single quadrupole ICP-MS, namely Ar2+ and ArCl+ interferences, as well as the trouble caused by the smaller BrH+ and Kr+ interferences.  In part 2, I discussed the additional problems of carbon enhancement of the selenium ion signal and rare earth doubly charged ion interference on […]
