Radioisotope induced X-ray fluorescence analysis is a rather simple and convenient method for investigating ashed plant material. In order to reduce matrix effects, thin samples (2 mg/cm2) are analyzed to obtain a reasonable compromise between maximum sensitivity and the lowest possible absorption effects. Concentrations are determined by standard addition method. A precision of 6-8% can be achieved. As an application, analytical results are given for whole grains of several sorts of wheat.
