This lab is equipped with standard material/facilities (furnaces, ultrasonic bath, rotary evaporator, etc.) for the preparation of solid sorbents and catalysts for different applications. Additionally, it also hosts a supporting state-of-the-art total inorganic carbon analyser which allows for the direct measurement of total inorganic carbon in a wide variety of sample matrices and concentrations.
CM140 Total Inorganic Carbon (TIC) Analyzer - Total inorganic carbon analyses by acidification and coulometric detection.
CM140 Total Inorganic Carbon (TIC) Analyser - Complete analytical system that allows the direct measurement of total inorganic carbon in a wide variety of sample matrices and concentrations. Combining a self-contained unit for the acidification of a sample (to evolve CO2), with a highly sensitive CO2 detector, the CM140 easily handles solid or liquid samples with concentrations from ppm levels to 100% inorganic carbon. Reaction times vary with sample type and temperature although 5 to 7-minute analyses are typical.
Applications include: Carbonates in pharmaceuticals, dissolved carbon dioxide in seawater, carbonates in geological materials, carbon dioxide in amine and hydrazine, carbonates in black liquors, carbonates in food.
