Mise en solution par fusion alcaline
The technique uses fluxing agents :
- Mixing: fluxing agent/sample, lowers the melting point of the sample.
- The main fluxing agents contain borates: LiBO2 / sample powder.
Melting is generally done in graphite crucibles using a magnetic induction furnace.
The obtained bead is dissolved in an acidified solution (HNO3 1%). The total volume is 200ml. It results in a dilution factor of 2000.
