Abstract: The CCQM -P106 pilot study was arganized by the inorganic working group of the Comité Consultatif pour Quantité de Matière (CCQM) as a feasibility comparison to study the applicability analysis methods to the polypropylene sample and test the abilities of the participants for measuring the Cd, CR, Hg and Pb in polypropylene. National Inststute of Metrology P.R. China (NIM) acted as the coordinating laboratory of this pilot study. There were 21 laboratories that submitted the final results. The median values of the mass fraction of Cd, Cr, Hg and Pb were 36.12 mg kg-1 (the median absolute deviation about the median (MADe) = 0.46 mg kg-1), 252.5 mg kg-1 (MADe = 3.4 mg kg-1), 387.0 mg kg-1 (MADe = 10.1 mg kg-1) and 466.2 mg kg-1(MADe = 8.9 mg kg-1), respectively. Isotope dilution mass spectromtry (IDMS), inductively coupled plasma-mass spectronomy (ICP-MS), inductively coupled plasma-optical spectrometry (ICP-OES), atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS), instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) measurement methods were used, and microwave digestion was used by the most of the participants. In general, very good agreement of the results was observed. Moreover, compared to the results of other methods, the results of IDMS still showed less spread amongst laboratories and had a smaller unceryainty. In addition, the results of someanalytes used by XRF and INAA also got sotisfactory agreement with the median value.
