Concentration Measurement of Sodium Hydroxide Solutions by Refractive Index
The concentration of sodium hydroxide in water can be easily and quickly determined by refractive index measurement.
Improve Digestion Quality and Save Money – Microwave Digestion rules out Open Digestion
Reliable elemental analysis results need robust sample preparation to destroy sample matrices or to separate matrix from analytes. The sample preparation step is by far the most error-prone and critical step of the analytical procedure.
Refractive Index Measurement of Ionic Liquids
Ionic liquids are special designer solvents as they are nonvolatile and liquid at ambient temperature, leading to a wide range of applications. Their refractive index helps to control the quality and also to characterize them.
