Determination of Trace Impurities in Gold by Isotope Dilution Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry
Gae Ho Lee*, Suk Ran Yang, Chang Jun Park, Kwang Woo Lee
Gold bonding wire of 0.076 mm in diameter used in semiconductor industry, is dissoved in aqua regia. The solution is then evaporated to near dryness several times with a few drops of HCl added to prepare the final sample solution in 5% HCl. The gold matrix is separated from trace impurities by controlled potential deposition. The whole electrolysis has been carried out inside a clean bench. An optimum potential is found to be +0.25 V to give more than 99.9% Au matrix removal with better than 90 analytes remaining in the electrolyte solution. Isotope dilution calibration is employed to get the best accuracy and precision. Analytical results are presented with determination limits of the analytical method.
