HOT paper: Calcium isotope measurement by combined HR-MC-ICPMS and TIMS

Schiller et al., 2012In this new article, Martin Schiller, Chad Paton and Martin Bizzarro of the Centre for Star and Planet Formation at the University of Copenhagen report a novel approach for the chemical purification of Ca from silicate rocks by ion-exchange chromatography, and a highly-precise method for the isotopic analysis of Ca by high-resolution multiple collector inductively coupled plasma source mass spectrometry (HR-MC-ICPMS), in combination with thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS).
