Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In 2024, we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) from the time it first became commercially available in 1974. Over the years, both ICP-OES and ICP-MS have witnessed remarkable growth and have become the preferred methods for analyzing trace elements in diverse sample matrices. With this significant milestone approaching, we recognize the value of providing an updated review on recent applications of ICP-OES to benefit the scientific community. This review aims to explore the wide-ranging applications of ICP-OES in various fields, specifically focusing on multielement analysis. By delving into the utilization of ICP-OES in areas such as food analysis, microplastics, materials, dietary supplements, human tissue, and bodily fluids, we hope to ignite the interest of prospective ICP-OES users and offer inspiration to current practitioners. It is important to note that this work does not seek to encompass a comprehensive review of ICP-OES, given the vast number of published results in this field. Undertaking such a comprehensive task would be an immense challenge. Consequently, we begin with an overview of the ICP-OES instrumental technique and then proceed directly to highlight recent significant applications in the aforementioned fields.
