  • Determination of micro and macro elements in waters with the ELAN DRC-e

    The ability of reaction cell technology to reduce the effects of spectral interferences is well-known, but another, lesser-known capability also exists: extending the dynamic range. This is accomplished by adjusting the bandpass parameters with no gas in the cell. Because the bandpass parameters can be adjusted on a per-mass basis, sensitivity can be reduced on selected isotopes without affecting ...

  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • Caltech working to solve the world`s energy problems with the help of inVia

    Fossil fuels are the world's main fuel source for transportation, heating and generating electricity. As a by-product, high levels of CO2 are released into the atmosphere. With the drive for sustainable energy production, a method that generates easily-stored fuel from sunlight—and absorbs CO2—is a very attractive proposition. The California Institute of Technology ...

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

    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 with thermal neutrons in a nuclear reactor and the ...

  • EDXRF Analysis of Sulfur and Other Elements in Oil

    The concentrations of sulfur substances in fuel oil, which greatly contribute to air pollution and acid rain, are regulated by law in many countries, and these regulations are becoming stricter with the growing concern about their impact on the environment and the consequences for society. Here, using the easy-to-operate EDX-720 energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, we determined the ...

  • ICP Analysis of Multiple Elements in Drinking Water

    The amount of water typically consumed by an adult is said to be about two liters per day, and nearly all of this is tap water or mineral water, generally referred to as "drinking water." Conducting safety inspections are the responsibility of each country according to their respective regulations. Typically, there are many target elements included in the test, such as sodium (Na), calcium ...

  • Content Analysis of Toxic Elements in Soil by Simultaneous ICP

    Contaminated soil not only leads to contamination of untreated drinking water through permeation into river water and rainwater, it adversely affects health when the soil itself is directly ingested as a child puts the ground into a stoma into a play etc. Therefore, assessment of soil toxicity using a defined method is required. I In Japan, the Soil ...

  • Thermal analysis of smart fins in a micro heat exchanger

    Micro heat exchangers using smart fins undergo variation of temperature along the passage of fluid flow. This requires analysis of these smart cantilevers under thermal load. In the present research, thermal analysis of bi-metallic smart, surface mounted, piezo patched cantilevers under thermal excitation, has been carried out. Electro-thermo-elastic governing equations and constitutive equations ...

  • Mercury Analysis

    Characteristics of Mercury What is Mercury? Mercury is a naturally occurring silver-colored metallic element noted for its occurrence as a liquid at room temperature and toxic to living organisms. This silvery, opaque liquid metal is very dense, yet has a high surface tension that causes it to form tiny perfect spheres in the pores of the rocks it is found in. It is ...
