Organic materials are the most challenging sample matrices for element analysis techniques, such as ICP-OES and -MS, AAS, and combustion based elemental analysis techniques for determination metals and non-metal elements like sulfur, nitrogen and chlorine. One reason is the wide concentration range, from a few ppt in applications (like silicone or chlorine in naphtha) to weight percentage in applications, such as total sulfur or nitrogen in crude oil and VGO. Also posing challenges is separating the organic matrix from the elements of interest. While inorganic samples are relatively easy to analyze due to their solid aggregation, the variety of forms organic compounds come in demands special requirements - solid, gaseous, or liquid, from extremely light volatile to highly viscous or paste-like. According to popular belief, analysis quality is determined by the sensitivity of the detection only. But at a closer look, suitable sample treatment, matrix-optimized supply, sharp and complete matrix separation, sufficient elimination of interferences, and intelligent calibration strategies are more important.
In this web seminar we want to share specifically our application experience for analysis of very light volatile liquids, posing challenges such as low boiling points, low density and viscosity and often by their high purity with the necessity of element determination, close to the limit of detection. As a user of element analysis techniques, such as ICP-OES, ICP-MS, AAS, and combustion based elemental analysis, you will learn on basis of real-world application examples how you can optimize your analytical workflow to gain fast and easy the reliable results you need, fully compliant to the relevant industry standards. Users from oil and gas, refineries, petrochemical and chemical industry, production of derived fuels and related contract labs, authorities and R&D center will benefit from this web seminar.
