A procedure of the multielement analysis of cadmium and cadmium oxide by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry is proposed. The effect of the concentration of the matrix component on the analytical signals of impurity elements is studied and the analytical lines of the analytes are chosen. For the chosen concentration of the matrix component, the optimum conditions of analysis are selected, i.e., power delivered to the plasma and the flow rate of sputtering argon gas. The accuracy of the developed procedure, ensuring the determination of up to 41 impurity elements with limits of detection in the range from n × 10–7 to n × 10–4 wt %, is estimated.
