|Procedures: A (HNO3) and B (HNO3 + HCl) use dilution factors of 0.6 g L−1, while 0.5 g L−1 is applied for procedure C (HNO3 + H2O2). In the three cases, 0.5 g of dry sample was digested. For the variations of method A with different amount of sample, (g), the corresponding MDLs have to be corrected by a factor of .|
