Chemical Testing

ECA performs many types of chemical testing procedures and can usually find an appropriate method for a given compound or group of compounds if a procedure is not readily available. Often we are required to check that a particular solvent or chemical meets the specification provided by the supplier. Many times the supplier develops in-house methodologies to assess their products and it requires both experience and skill for our scientists to reproduce these methods in our laboratory. The following is a list of our most commonly performed chemical testing capabilities for our industrial clients:

  • Gas Chromatography (GC)
  • High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Karl Fischer Moisture Determination (KF)
  • Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy/Energy Dispersive Xray Spectrscopy (SEM/EDXS)
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Ion Chromatography (IC)
  • Ion Coupled Plasma/Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES)
  • Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AA, GFAA)
  • Ultraviolet-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis)
  • Titrimetry/Wet Chemistry/Gravimetry

Please contact us with your specific requirement, we will be glad to work with you and determine the most cost-effective analytical procedure to provide the required result.
