matrix interference

matrix interference

A shift in analytical results caused by one or more specific constituents in the matrix, generally understood to be specific chemical components. Matrix interference may be due to physicochemical properties (viscocity, surface tension, vapour pressure, Donnan-related effects).

The method was prone to matrix interference, with the impact of the sample matrix on the reported result being unknown.
In this paper, we attempted to reduce the matrix interference utilizing ion-exchange solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridges and successfully met the criterion of method availability.
However, direct determination of such low concentration of elements by FAAS is often difficult, not only due to the limitation associated with the insufficient sensitivity of the analytical instrumentation, but also due to complex formation and high matrix interference which invariably influence normal instrumental analysis [1, 2].
Therefore, it stands to reason that the probability of matrix interference occurring is highly likely, considering the multitude of products on the market, all of which contain different materials.
Disadvantages are matrix interference, and that for most electronics it is difficult or impossible to perform the analysis on homogeneous areas without overlapping other materials on the device.
