Water samples were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) at the Trace Element Analysis (TEA) Core at Dartmouth using a quadrupole collision cell 7500c Octopole Reaction System (Agilent) and helium as a collision gas to remove polyatomic interferences.
The upstream materials of polyurethane include three categories, namely, isocyanates (mainly MDI and TDI), polyatomic alcohols (chiefly PPG, PTMEG, BDO and AA) and auxiliaries (principally DMF).
The analytical method used an octopol reaction system (ORS), operated in helium (collision mode) and hydrogen (reaction mode) for removal of polyatomic interferences.
Among the topics are theoretical insights into cluster secondary ion mass spectrometry (cluster SIMS), surface analysis of organic materials with polyatomic primary ion sources, three-dimensional imaging with cluster ion beams, and cluster SIMS for the depth profiling of semiconductors and metals.

6 mL/min) was used as the collision gas for the octopole reaction mode to reduce isobaric and polyatomic interference.
Big inclination of VAC and a higher general level of the arc voltage (propane-butane or its mixture with air) in comparison with operation on argon are explained by significant consumption of power on dissociation and ionization of the polyatomic gases.
This result is in accordance with literature data, which assess a minimum pyrrole/counter ion ratio of 3 for polyatomic anions as dopants [2].
As a result, the iron concentration in the otoliths of fish is also very low that makes the determination of iron problematic by ICP-MS due to interferences of otolith matrix and spectral overlaps of polyatomic ions on isotopes of iron.
