FTIR Spectroscopy

by CIC Photonics, Inc.  (Aug. 9, 2011)

Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy bases its functionality on the principle that almost all molecules absorb infrared light. Only the monatomic (He, Ne, Ar, etc) and homopolar diatomic (H2, N2, O2, etc) molecules do not absorb infrared light. Molecules only absorb infrared light at those frequencies where the infrared light affects the ...

Indirect Determination of Gold Purity by Measurement of Impurities with Flame Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

by Buck Scientific Inc  (Jan. 1, 2006)

The determination of the purity of scrap and refined gold is a very important procedure for the financial markets, the jewelry business and the electronics industry. Over the years, the classical fire assay technique has been used for gold determination but this is a very labor-intensive procedure, and prone to many operator errors. ...

Determining Beryllium in Drinking Water by Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

by American Water Works Association (AWWA)  (Feb. 1, 1993)

A direct graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy method for the analysis of beryllium in drinking water has been derived from a method for determining beryllium in urine. Ammonium phosphomolybdate and ascorbic acid were employed as matrix modifiers. The matrix modifiers successfully eliminated common chemical interferences in water samples ...

Determination of Major Electrolytes, Minor Minerals, and Trace Heavy Metals in Physiological Fluids by Flame and Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

by Buck Scientific Inc  (Jan. 1, 2006)

Accurate measurements of specific metals in various biological systems is extremely important. These metals can be classified into several groups: the high level major electrolytes (Na, K, Ca, Mg), which are crucial to normal primary physiological processes like cellular activity and metabolism; the minor minerals (Fe, Mn, Zn, Co, Cu), which ...

Nanoparticles and nanowires: synchrotron spectroscopy studies

by Inderscience Publishers  (Aug. 22, 2008)

This paper reviews the research in nanomaterials conducted in our laboratory in the last decade using conventional and synchrotron radiation techniques. While preparative and conventional characterisation techniques are described, emphasis is placed on the analysis of nanomaterials using synchrotron radiation. Materials of primary interests are ...

Determination of Mercury (Hg) in Water by Hand-Held, Portable Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence SpectrometryWater is the most familiar and most abundant compound on Earth, making up 71% of its surface area.[1]It is a vital component for all known forms of life and is the aquatic habitat for thousands of species of microalgae, fish and shellfish. [2] ...

Low level moisture measurement in Natural gas using a Lunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (tdlas) based laser case study

by Ametek Process Instruments - THERMOX  (Nov. 24, 2014)

Introduction The measurement of water vapor in natural gas has long been of industrial importance, and has been addressed by a variety of analytical techniques over the years. Chief among these techniques has been the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) based analyzers. The QCM technology is still the workhorse for production and pipeline ...

Determination of macro, micro nutrient and trace element concentrations in Indian medicinal plants using instrumental neutron activation analysis and atomic absorption spectroscopy techniques

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 5, 2010)

Specific parts (fruits and seeds) of different medicinal plants often used in Indian Ayurvedic system were analysed for 18 elements (K, Mn, Na, Fe, Zn, Cu, Co, Br, Sm, Cl, La, Al, Cr, Ca Cd, Ni, Pb and Hg) by employing instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) and atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) techniques. The samples were irradiated ...

Characterizing natural dissolved organic matter in a freshly submerged catchment (Three Gorges Dam, China) using UV absorption, fluorescence spectroscopy and PARAFAC

by IWA Publishing  (Feb. 1, 2012)

This study applied parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) to fluorescence excitation–emission matrices (EEMs) of natural water samples in a freshly submerged catchment in the upper reach of Three Gorges Dam (China). Two fluorescent natural dissolved organic matter (NDOM) components (humic/fulvic-like) were uncovered and were positively correlated with ...
