Organic solvents are commonly used in manufacturing and laboratory applications. Solvent recycling is an attractive option to reduce the cost of material or costs associated with solvent disposal. A variety of options exist for solvent recycling - from commercially available distillation systems to third-party companies that collect and refine solvent waste. We will discuss how to obtain spectroscopic measurement to confirm the identity of the solvent and moisture content.

Event Overview:

Organic solvents are commonly used in manufacturing and laboratory applications. Solvent recycling is an attractive option to reduce the cost of material or costs associated with solvent disposal. A variety of options exist for solvent recycling - from commercially available distillation systems to third-party companies that collect and refine solvent waste. We will discuss how to obtain spectroscopic measurement to confirm the identity of the solvent and moisture content.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Using conformity testing to identify impurities in a sample
  • Determine moisture content in FT-NIR applications
  • Step-by-step development of the Conformity Test and a PLS calibration for moisture will be presented


Who Should Attend:

  • Those looking for a tool combining confirmation of identity and moisture determination into a single workflow
  • Learning about options for organic solvent recycling using NIR Spectroscopy
  • Those looking for a step-by-step development of a conformity test and a PLS calibration for moisture
  • Transferability of the method between different instruments will be shown as a way to leverage model development across multiple instruments and sites
  • Those working with recycled solvents that require qualification to ensure impurities and moisture content are within acceptable limits
