A method has been developed to determine high-precision stable Nd isotopic compositions in geological samples by multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) using sample-standard-bracketing (SSB) mode. The internal precision for the stable Nd isotopic compositions, ε142Nd, ε145Nd, ε146Nd and ε148Nd were generally better than ±0.2 (2 SEM), and the external precision was generally better than ±0.2 (1 SD) for ε142Nd, ε145Nd and ε146Nd, and better than ±0.5 (1 SD) for ε148Nd based on the long-term results of the Nd standard solutions, such as La Jolla, Nd-GIG and NIST 3135a. Both the internal and external precisions are comparable to those by double-spike method.
