ICP-AES analysis of aluminum isopropoxide, yttrium, and neodymium oxide nanopowders

A technique has been developed for analysis of impurities in precursors of the optic ceramics: aluminum isopropoxide, yttrium and neodium oxide nanopowders (weight fraction of Nd ≤5%) by atomic-emission spectroscopy with inductively coupled plasma. In the case of aluminum isopropoxide, the effect of matrix is compensated by applying Bi as an internal standard. The detection limits of impurities were found to be10-5-10-6 wt.%.
