The Optical emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-OES) is used for elemental analysis in aqueous, acidic solutions. By means of this measurement method, metals up to a content of 1 ppm can be determined.
Using the Agilent 8800 ICP-MS Triple Quad, the metal contents of organic and aqueous solutions can be determined. The determination limit is in the ppb range.
CHN elemental analysisITMC Aachen
The PE 2400 Series II CHNS/O Analyzer determines the content of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur and oxygen in organic materials. One of two classical organic elemental analysis techniques is used for these determinations:
- Combustion in a pure oxygen environment
- for carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen,
- for carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulfur
- Pyrolysis in a helium/hydrogen mixture
- for oxygen
Thermogravimetric analysisITMC Aachen
The simultaneous thermal analyzer Netzsch STA 409 C allowes simultaneous measurements of Thermogravimetric analysis, shortened TG, Differential thermal analysis, abbreviated DTA, or Differential scanning calorimetry, abbreviated DSC.
It is also possible to conduct measurements under inert atmosphere.
X-ray DiffractionITMC Aachen
X-ray apparatus Siemens D 5000 is a powder diffractometer and build up as a 2Θ apparatus. The source of radiation is made from copper.
Due to a autosampler with 40 slots a high throughput can be generated.
Multiplate UV/Vis-ReaderITMC Aachen
can be used
for measurements in the
and many other applications
Furthermore, 96- and 384- well microplates can be measured with a programmable shaking and temperature control based on the ambient temperature + 4 ° C to 50 ° C in the range 200 to 999 nm.
With the Jasco P-1020 polarimeter, the optical rotation of an optically active substance can be measured quickly and fully automatically. Moreover, quantitative analyzes are possible to distinguish between D- and L-isomers.
- 20 °C temperature correction of optical rotation data
- Automatic measurement upon opening/closing the sample chamber lid
- Measurement in six different measurement modes
- Features a wavelength range of 253 to 880 nm
The Karl-Fischer Koulombmeter is used to determine the water content of solvents in the ppm range.
