Low temperature GC coupled on-line with ICP-MS was used to identify volatile metal and metalloid compounds in gases and condensates from a domestic waste deposit. Seven tin species could be identified by external standard addition and further volatile compounds of tin, bismuth, mercury, arsenic, antimony and tellurium could be found by boiling point calibration, respectively. Some technical and methodical concepts towards quantification of the results are indicated.
