Calculation to convert ICP-OES Silicon results to Silica
We analyze for Silicon via ICP-OES in aqueous matrices and perform a calculation to convert the Silicon result determined from the instrument into a Silica result. I want to confirm that the calculation we are using for the conversion is accurate. Can you provide me with the calculation your experts would recommend?

Matrix of Inorganic Standards
Will there be any difference in results if let's say, I use a inorganic standard that was previously prepared in 8% HNO3 vs the same inorganic standard but prepared in matrix 5% HNO3 ?
