Subject: HF alternatives in ICP?

	From: 	  Mary.Prisby**At_Symbol_Here**

We are currently using HF with boric acid and Nitric for metal
digestion in preparation to be analyzed for ICP.  The metal is on an
alumina base.  I would like to know if any of the members have evaluated
alternative prep methods for this or have decreased the % HF and got the
same results.
