MPI-DING reference glasses
Eight silicate MPI-DING glasses were prepared by directly fusing and stirring 50-100 g each of basalt, andesite, komatiite, peridotite, rhyolite and quartz-diorite. They are a suitable set of homogeneous reference materials for in-situ microanalytical work.
Certified values for up to 74 major and trace elements have been determined following ISO guidelines. The isotopic composition of H, Li, B, O, Si, Ca, Sr, Nd, Hf, Pb and U was determined by high-precision bulk and microanalytical techniques (see GeoReM database).
