Supporting the UN’s “Ocean Decade” via Direct Trace Elemental Analysis of Seawater

March 23, 2022

Tuesday March 22nd 2022 at 11 am EDT | 8 am PDT | 3 pm GMT Join this webinar to learn about recent methods for the direct analysis of trace elements in seawater, leveraging the benefits of proven ICP-MS technologies for challenging matrices, including multi-quadrupole technology, which provides the added benefit of interference-free analysis, ideal for open-ocean seawater matrices, where trace elements are even lower than in coastal areas.

Elemental Testing for the Lithium Battery Industry

January 05, 2022

Lithium (Li) plays an important role in everyday life and can be found around us in nearly every aspect of modern living. One of the most common uses of lithium is in batteries. Lithium batteries can be found in cell phones, computers, electric vehicles, and every portable electronic device. With the demand for higher-capacity batteries, current battery production technology must improve, requiring better control of the elemental composition of the raw materials and components used. Atomic spectroscopic techniques, such as atomic absorption (AA), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) are used for a variety of analyses in the Li supply chain and battery industry. In this podcast we will explore a range of applications where these analytical techniques are used to further improve battery performance and safety.
