  • Quality control put to the test

    X-RAY FLUORESCENCE spectroscopy (XRF) is ideal for quality control as it is non-destructive, requires simplesample preparation, and is very fast and accurate. Alternative techniques often require time-consuming, costly, andpotentially hazardous preparation before measurements can be made. The MiniPal QC is the latest addition to Panalytical’s successful line of MiniPal benchtop XRF ...

  • Hyphenated techniques as modern detection systems in ion chromatography

    Ion chromatography (IC) with conductivity detection has been successfully used to analyze low-molecular organic compounds such as amines and organic acids, as well as anionic and cationic substances. However, due to current toxicity concerns and the consequently lowered maximum contaminant levels (MCL), analyses in complex matrices require improved sensitivity and selectivity. The coupling of IC ...

  • Degradation of malachite green by dielectric barrier discharge plasma

    Oxidative decomposition of aqueous organic pollutant malachite green (MG) was studied in a dielectric barrier discharge reactor operated under ambient conditions. Total organic carbon content analysis confirmed the mineralization of the pollutant leading to the formation of carbon dioxide, which was confirmed by an infrared analyzer. Typical results indicated that the degradation rate increases ...

  • 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 ...

  • Determination of Selected ASTM Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs) Using LC-MS/MS

    ASTM methods D7968-14 and D7979-15 are used to determine the same list of PFCs but in different matrices. ASTM method D7968-14 lists soil as a matrix while ASTM method 7979-15 lists water, sludge, influent, effluent and waste water as matrix options. These methods use different extraction techniques but both evaluate the samples by liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). We ...
