Materials with the same chemical formula but different crystal structures are called crystal polymorphs. X-ray diffraction is used to evaluate crystal polymorphs. This application note shows an example in which a trace component of anatase (TiO2) contained in titanium oxide with a rutile (TiO2) structure was evaluated with the standard addition method by using a high-speed 1-dimensional detector

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) 2232 designates permitted daily exposure (PDE) levels for four elements for which toxicity is a concern in dietary supplements. Compliance with these regulations is also obligatory for supplements imported to the U.S. This note shows a quantitative analysis performed on arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead in supplements using ICP-MS.
