At JCST we are able to combining a comprehensive range of both classical wet chemistry and instrumental techniques to give the most cost effective solutions to most chemical problems.
Classical wet chemistry
The wet chemistry basically falls into two distinct areas
Using classic methods to identify chemical species
Using standard methods to isolate the chemical species under investigation and then identify the species and if necessary quantify the amount present. Identification can be achieved by a colour change or possibly pH. The amount present can be identified by the intensity of colour although this would normally be done instrumentally or by precipitation.
Using classical methods to prepare samples for analysis by instrumental methods
Samples of metals for analysis are often dissolved in acids to enable the resulting solution to be analysed using such techniques as Atomic Absorption/emission. In this way classical methods enable the samples to be analysed in the most effective way.
At JCST we have a wide range of instrumental methods available to analyse your samples. Methods such as:-
- Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
- Gas Chromatography
- High performance liquid Chromatography
- Infrared Spectrophotometry
- Ultraviolet and Visible Absorption Spectrophotemetry
