Abstract

Methods are suggested to decrease the error of selenium analysis from plant and soil samples. To analyse selenium in agricultural samples (plant, food, feed and soil), the most appropriate inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer is a quadrupole instrument applying a collision cell technique (CCT). The extent of interfering effect of carbon content depends on the type of compounds. The carbon content significantly affects the measured concentration (intensities) of Se, which can be corrected using internal standard (arsenic or tellurium).
