Inorganic product analysis

Dr. Nicole Jahr

 

Dr. Andy Schmied

Professional expertise:

investigations of raw inorganic materials, precursors, and final products

Products investigated:

  • Industrial chlorine products (e.g. salt, base, gas)
  • Acid halides, chlorosilanes, water free metal halides
  • Gases
  • Silicates, glasses, quartz, ceramics, composites
  • Metals and metal salts (e.g. steel, molybdenum, tungsten, aluminium)
  • Pigments and inorganic specialty chemicals
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Determination of total organic halogen in ppm concentration (for chlorine and sulfur)

Available methods:

  • Titration, gravimetry, photometry, volumetric
  • Mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS)
  • Atomic absorption spectroscopy (3 different technologies of atomization)
  • Atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES, ICP-MS)
  • X-ray fluorescence spectrometry of solids and solutions
  • Total organic halogen analyzer for chlorine and sulfur (Tox 300 analyzer)
