Abstract: SI-traceability ("absolute") values have been obtained for sulfur isotope amount ratios n(33S)/n(32S) and n(34S)/n(32S), in two batches of high purity SO2 gas (IRMM-2012 and IRMM-2013). The SO2 gas was converted at IMR-Beijing to Ag2S, then fluorinated to SF6 gas both at IMR-Beijing and at IRMM-Geel. Yields of different conversion methods exceed 99 %. The sulfur amount-of-substance measurements were performed by gas mass spectrometry on SF5+ ions using "IRMM's amount comparator II". These isotope amount ratios were calibrated by means of gravimetrically prepared synthetic mixtures of highly enriched sulfur isotopes (32S, 33S and 34S) in Ag2S form. The ratio values in the SO2 Secondary Measurement Standard are traceable to the SI system. They can be used in the calibration of field sulfur isotope measurements thus making these metrologically traceable to the SI.
