    Sample preparation methods for MC-ICP-MS silicon-isotope measurements often involve a cation-exchange purification step. A previous study has argued that this would suffice for geological materials, as the occasional enrichment of anionic species would not compromise silicon-isotope analysis. Here we report significant offsets in MC-ICP-MS silicon-isotope measurements induced by the presence of sulfur. We show that offsets in δ
