An overview of quantiﬁcation methods in energy-dispersive X-ray ﬂuorescence analysis
This paper reviews the major factors inﬂuencing the accuracy of the energy-dispersive X-ray ﬂuorescence (EDXRF) analysis including physical and chemical matrix effects (resulting from particle size, surface irregularity, mineralogy, moisture, absorption and enhancement) as well as the correction procedures with emphasis on the analysis of unprepared samples. Quantiﬁcation methods for thin samples, samples with intermediate thickness and thick samples are presented including fundamental parameter methods, inﬂuence coefﬁcient algorithms, empirical coefﬁcient algorithms and quantiﬁcation methods based on scattered primary radiation. Quality control procedures are also reviewed.
