This paper presents the results of a series of studies aimed at investigating the reference material (RM) of a multicomponent solution. An algorithm for estimating the uncertainty induced by the chemical element content in the RM is proposed taking into account the mass of the measurand in each component of the mixture. The results calculated according to the preparation procedure using the proposed algorithm were confirmed by the Monte Carlo method, while the elemental content in the mixture was confirmed via inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy. The applicability of weighted mean estimates for characterizing an RM of a multicomponent solution is shown.
