  • abstract:

    Makishima and Nakamura (M&N) reported a new determination method of sulfur content in geological materials by isotope dilution using high resolution ICPMS. In this paper, sulfur contents of 10 silicate reference materials, including BCR-1, which has been one of the most important reference materials for nearly 40 years, in addition to WMS-1 and the Smithsonian reference Allende powder were determined. The method seems to be theoretically robust; however, Kelly et al. claimed that the sulfur content of BCR-1 by M&N (474 ± 14 μg g-1, 1σ) is too high beyond the 95% confidence intervals of the consensus values of Gladney et al. (410 ± 50μg g-1), Watanabe (441 ± 1.5μg g-1), and new analyses of KVM (446.8 ± 2.6; 438.7 ± 2.0μg g-1) by Carius tube digestion using isotope dilution−thermal ionization mass spectrometry.
