First results from platinum reference samples published

In Cobelo-García and co-authors work, data on platinum (Pt) concentrations in SAFe and GEOTRACES reference samples is reported for the first time. The paper also provides helpful information for those using voltammetric procedures for the analysis of trace elements in seawater, where the use of signal processing (e.g. second derivative) can successfully be used to overcome the effects of intensive matrix background or the presence of interfering peaks.
