Recycling steel products demands a new technique for determining tramp elements in steel. Tramp elements, As and Sb, in some
iron certified reference materials were determined by neutron activation analysis with multiple gamma-ray detection method
and reported in MTAA11. In MTAA12, the authors reported the lower limit of determination values (LDL) and the dispersion of
this method. The values of the LDLs for As and Sb in high purity iron were 0.002 and 0.0009 μg·g−1. The dispersion is small enough to satisfy the demand from materials science.
