IAEA-603 , Calcite

Inorganic , Mineral

The reference material IAEA-603 (calcite, CaCO3) prepared with the aim to replace the reference material NBS19 (exhausted) is certified for the stable isotopic δ13C and δ18O composition. Description of the material, its intended use, results of the characterisation and the values assignment can be found in the Reference Sheet. The material IAEA-603 is supplied as 0.5 g units in flame sealed glass ampoules.
