Water quality -- Determination of arsenic and antimony -- Part 1: Method using hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS)
Generally sea water is outside the scope of ISO 17378-1:2014. Sea water samples can be analysed using a standard additions approach providing that this is validated for the samples under test. The method is unlikely to detect organo-arsenic compounds or organo-antimony compounds.
The sensitivity of this method is dependent on the selected operating conditions.
