  • Like a phoenix from the ashes

    Like a phoenix from the ashes

    Thanks to growing environmental awareness, waste is increasingly being separated and recycled. However, residual waste always remains that can`t easily be recycled. This ends up in waste incineration plants (referred to as KVAs in Swiss German) for ...

  • Determining saccharidic tracers in atmospheric aerosols

    Determining saccharidic tracers in atmospheric aerosols

    Atmosperic aerosols have a strong impact on the climate. Within the organic aerosol fraction, anhydrosugars and sugar alcohols are valuable tracers for biomass burning and biogenic sources. They are best determined by ion chromatography coupled to ...

  • Hyphenated techniques as modern detection systems in ion chromatography

    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 ...

  • Opt for the easy way: Determining glycerol in biodiesel using ion chromatography

    Opt for the easy way: Determining glycerol in biodiesel using ion chromatography

    Current US and European standards stipulate gas chromatography to determine the glycerol content in biodiesel. However, this method is both tedious and rather expensive. Metrohm recommends ion chromatography (IC) as a simple, cost-efficient and ...
