# Detectable elements using flame AES

I've been looking for extra information concerning flame atomic emission spectroscopy. I need a clear overview of which elements are detectable with this technique, but I can't find anything because flame AES seems to be quite outdated.

If there is no such overview, could there be a list of elements not detectable by flame AES, but detectable by ICP-AES? That would also work for me.

• @WilGos Your capital is diversified, and money is only one form. An additional your experience. If school/library/institutes in your area are not an option now, the combination of "atomic emission spectroscopy" "detection limit" in google still yields, for example, the Chemistry Libre Texts (chem.libretexts.org) including the AnaChem by Harvey with chapter 10.7 about AES (chem.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Analytical_Chemistry/…).
