  • Analysis of Tin (Sn) in Plastic (PE) Samples using EDX

    Various methods such as ICP and X-ray spectrometry are widely used in the analysis of tin (Sn) element which is used in many industries such as electric-electronic, plastic, packaging, glass, textile. The purpose of this study is to analyse Tin element in plastic (PE) samples at the determined LOD value using EDX spectrometry, which is a non-destructive method requiring no sample preparation.

    Instrument: Shimadzu EDX-7000 Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (EDX)

  • GC-MS Analysis of Phtalates: Comparison of GC Stationary Phase Performance

    Phthalates are ubiquitous in the environment and have attracted attention due to their potential adverse impact on human health. For this reason, detection and separation of phthalates has become a necessity. In this study, Restek Pro EZGC gas chromatographic modeling software was employed to determine the optimal stationary phases and conditions for phthalate GC-MS analysis.
