Sample Preparation: Microwave acid digestion wet chemical digestion with mineral acids (HCl, HNO 3 , HF, H 2 SO 4 , etc.), H 2 O 2 , other liquid reagents in open system or closed vessels under heating usually for solid samples (<1 g) or samples that are insoluble in solvent, making it difficult for aerosolization during sample introduction in AAS and AES

Sample Preparation: Microwave acid digestion HNO 3 as strong acid to dissolve inorg. oxides CaO + 2H 3 O + Ca 2+ + 3H 2 O HNO 3 as acid/oxidizing agent to dissolve zero-valence inorg. metals & nonmetals Fe 0 + 3H 3 O + + 3HNO 3 (conc.) Fe 3+ + 3NO 2 ↑ (brown) + 6H 2 O 3Cu 0 + 6H 3 O + + 2HNO 3 (dil.) 3Cu 2+ + 2NO↑ (clear) + 10H 2 O HNO 3 forms mostly soluble compounds with all elements except with Au, Pt, Al, B, Cr, Ti, Zr [ ] > 2M maintain oxidizing ability
