Iron speciation analysis in soil using IC-ICP/MS in accordance with EPA SW846 Method 6800 

Speciation analysis of iron is important, given that its oxidation level has a great influence on environmental response, not only with respect to its absorption by organisms but also to the transport and the storage of the element. Iron(II) and Iron(III) are separated on the Metrosep A Supp 10 S-Guard/4.0 column. IC-ICP/MS with isotope dilution is used for quantification.
