Abstract:Lanthanum is found in relatively large quantities in the Earth's crust (32 ppm). Thus, there is a greater chance of La to be present in living systems, geological samples, and minerals. The presence of La even at trace amounts can interfere in the determination of other analytes in the samples. The present work is a systematic study of spectral interference caused by La on different analytes (Ag,
