I would say from reading the following linked article, 纯正物质 would be appropriate. Therefore I also agree with clearwater\'s suggestion

The theme of essential reliance on the “use of reference materials in the control laboratory” was developed by Dr Michael Hildebrand (head of QC at Schering, Berlin). The common impression of reference materials (RMs) was that of substances of the highest obtainable purity with internationally defined properties. These existed; but Dr Hildebrand said that they were at the top of a functional hierarchy. Below the international standard there might be a national “primary standard”, which was a specially purified authentic substance available from the competent national authority. Below this was a “working standard”, possibly prepared in-house, which was calibrated against the primary standard but was much cheaper and readily available for daily use. There might also be “impurity standards”, which did not themselves have to be of the highest purity; these might be isolated chromatographically by the prime manufacturer, or specially synthesised.
