Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), also referred to as inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is an analytical technique used for the detection of trace metals. Compared to atomic absorption techniques, ICP-OES has greater speed, precision, and sensitivity.
It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses the inductively coupled plasma to produce excited atoms and ions that emit electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths characteristic of a particular element .It is a flame technique with a flame temperature in a range from 6000 to 10000 K. It is also a solution technique & standard silicate dissolution methods are employed. The intensity of this emission is indicative of the concentration of the element within the sample.
In recent years, industrial and biological monitoring has presented another major need for metal analysis via ICP-OES. Individuals working in plants where exposure to metals is likely and unavoidable, such as a battery factory, are required by their employer to have their blood or urine analyzed for metal toxicity on a regular basis. This monitoring has become a mandatory practice implemented by OSHA, in an effort to protect workers from their work environment and ensure proper rotation of work duties (i.e. rotating employees from a high exposure position to a low exposure position).
Some of the applications where ICP OES is used are the determination of metals in wine, arsenic in food, and trace elements bound to proteins.
ICP-OES is widely used in minerals processing to provide the data on grades of various streams, for the construction of mass balances.
ICP-OES is often used for analysis of trace elements in soil, and it is for that reason it is often used in forensics to ascertain the origin of soil samples found at crime scenes or on victims etc. Taking one sample from a control and determining the metal composition and taking the sample obtained from evidence and determine that metal composition allows a comparison to be made. While soil evidence may not stand alone in court it certainly strengthens other evidence.
It is also fast becoming the analytical method of choice for the determination of nutrient levels in agricultural soils. This information is then used to calculate the amount of fertilizer required to maximize crop yield and quality.
ICP-OES is used for motor oil analysis. Analyzing used motor oil reveals a great deal about how the engine is operating. Parts that wear in the engine will deposit traces in the oil which can be detected with ICP-OES. ICP-OES analysis can help to determine whether parts are failing. In addition, ICP-OES can determine what amount of certain oil additives remain and therefore indicate how much service life the oil has remaining. Oil analysis is often used by fleet manager or automotive enthusiasts who have an interest in finding out as much about their engine's operation as possible. ICP-OES is also used during the production of motor oils (and other lubricating oils) for quality control and compliance with production and industry specifications.
