Tamburini, Federica Arppe, Laura 2021-06-10T09:44:57Z Cristini, Domiziana Watzinger, Andrea eng Arppe, Laura Schott, Katharina Knöller, Kay Schott, Katharina Skrzypek, Grzegorz Watzinger, Andrea New Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> comparison material for stable oxygen isotope analysis Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International 2021-06-30 Knöller, Kay Hood-Nowotny, Rebecca Rationale: A silver phosphate reference material (Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub>) for the measurement of stable oxygen isotope compositions is much needed; however, it is not available from the authorities distributing reference materials. This study aims to fill this gap by calibrating a new Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> stable isotope comparison material produced by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU).<br />Methods: Aliquots of Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> were distributed to four laboratories who frequently measure the δ<sup>18</sup>O value in Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4 </sub>; the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), the University of Western Australia (UWA), the University of Helsinki (UH), and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). The instruments used to perform the measurements were high-temperature conversion elemental analysers coupled with continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometers. The working gas δ<sup>18</sup>O value was set to 0‰ and the normalization was done by a three-point linear regression using the reference materials IAEA-601, IAEA-602, and NBS127.<br />Results: The mean δ<sup>18</sup>O value of the new BOKU Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4 </sub>comparison material on the VSMOW-SLAP scale is 13.71‰ and the combined uncertainty is estimated as ±0.34‰. This estimated uncertainty is within the range typical for comparison materials of phosphates and sulphates. Consistent results from the different laboratories probably derived from similar instrumentation, and use of the same reference materials and normalization procedure. The matrix effect of the different reference materials used in this study was deemed negligible. Conclusions: The BOKU Ag<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> can be used as an alternative comparison material for stable oxygen isotope analysis and is available for stable isotope research laboratories to facilitate calibration.
