Abstract

Trace element concentrations in honey collected from a wide area can be used as an environmental indicator, but sample preparation methods prior to analysis can have large effects on the results. The efficiency and reproducibility of sample preparation methods (dilution, ashing and digestion) for simultaneous multi-element analysis have been compared for 13 elements. Digestion in a PTFE bomb was found to be the most reliable method.
