    • Abstract

       

      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.
