all chemical components in a mixture to be analyzed including the analyte.
A specific type of medium (e.g., surface water, drinking water) in which the analyte of interest may be contained.
For a given component, the matrix is the "background" of all gases present in the gas mixture. This term is most frequently used to contrast two gas mixtures with a common minor component but with different combinations of other components which affect blending or analysis. "Matrix matching" is one technique that can be used to overcome interferences caused by matrix effects. Example: Mixture A contains 500 ppm of NO in a nitrogen balance, and Mixture B 500 ppm of NO and 20% CO2 and a nitrogen balance. The matrix for Mixture A is nitrogen, whereas the matrix for Mixture B is nitrogen with 20% CO2. The analysis for NO in these two gas mixtures is radically different because of CO2 interference.
