  • Quantitative analysis of Powdered solids case study

    Introduction Infrared quantitative analyses are an everyday requirement in the analytical laboratory. While liquid solutions are commonly analyzed, mixtures of powdered components also exist and often require quantitative analysis without dissolution into a solvent. This paper outlines the development of quantitative analysis methods for two powdered mixtures. The traditional ...

  • Carbon Dating in Oxford

    Several members of our team visited the Archaeology Department (RLAHA) at the University of Oxford recently, to discover how some of our products were being used at the University. Interestingly, they were informed that our presses were part of the carbon dating process for bones. The Department receive bones that have been founnd by archeologists in excavations or sometimes by ...

    Written by Leda Zimmerman.You can read the original new in MIT NewsIn 2010, after a decade of meticulous preparation, Daniel Casey and an MIT team finally ran their experiment. The world’s largest laser struck a millimeter-sized target, and in less than a second, it was ...

  • Modelling of sediment nutrient fluxes for a pulsed organic load

    A sediment model has been developed to simulate the Sediment Oxygen Demand (SOD) and sediment nutrient fluxes after a sudden input of Particulate Organic Matter (POM). Compared with previous sediment models, the main advances are the use of a continuous function to represent the kinetics of POM diagenesis and inclusion of the biomass content in POM diagenesis. Laboratory experiments were also ...

  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...
