CHNOS analysis of organic materials

Determination of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen content of an organic sample. CHNS analysis (”LECO analysis”) is performed using a flash combustion method, where the sample is combusted under 25 kPa of O2 at an elevated temperature …

Metal screening by ICP-SFMS

This metal screening analysis includes the semi-quantitative determination of 70 elements. The method can be used, for example, to determine the background concentrations of metals in environmental samples or to study the elemental distribution of unknown …

Specific surface area + pore size analysis

N2 adsorption analysis to determine specific surface area and pore size of solid materials.

Lignin content of biomass

NREL/TP 510-42618, TAPPI T-UM 250, TAPPI T222
Determination of the acid-insoluble and acid-soluble lignin content of biomass samples. A solid biomass sample is hydrolyzed, and the acid-insoluble residue is filtered out …

Elemental analysis of wood or pulp

EPA 6020B
Determining the content of S, Na, K, Ca, Fe, Cu, Mg, Mn, Si, and P in a wood or pulp powder sample. The sample is microwave-digested using a solution of HF, HNO3, and HCl before the analysis. The elements are then detected using …

Seaweed carbohydrate analysis

This analysis is used to determine the carbohydrate content of seaweed-based samples. A solid sample is hydrolyzed, the acid-insoluble residue is filtered out, and monosaccharide components are analyzed using ion chromatography. Ash content is determined …

Ash content of paper, board or pulp

The test determines the ash content of paper, board, and pulp upon being ignited at 525 °C. The results express the mass of the inorganics in your sample.

Ash content of solid recovered fuels (EN 15403 or ISO 21656)

EN 15403, ISO 21656
The test is used to determine the ash content of a solid recovered fuel sample according to EN 15403 or ISO 21656 methods. The ashing temperature is typically 550 °C but …

Degree of substitution of chemically modified carbohydrates

Determination of the degree of substitution of chemically modified carbohydrate samples with the 31P NMR method. Suitable for mono-, di-, oligo- and polysaccharides. Price includes sample preparation through …

Lignin molecular weight distribution

Lignin sample molar mass distribution analysis using size exclusion chromatography (SEC) coupled with a UV detector at wavelength 256 nm. The lignin is dissolved in a suitable solvent before analysis. The SEC system is calibrated with a …

13C stable isotope analysis

Chloride in solid matrices (water-soluble, one step batch extraction)

Determination of the amount of water-soluble chloride in solid matrices. Chloride is extracted from the dried sample with water in a single-stage shaking test at room temperature (20 ± 5°C) …

Lignin ash content

ISO 1762
Lignin sample ash content measurement at 525°C. The result is expressed as a mass percentage of the ash from the initial sample on a dry matter basis.

Seaweed-based sugars in solution

Analysis of the sugar content of seaweed-based solution samples. First, free monomeric sugar components are determined from the solution using ion chromatography. Then, the sample is acid hydrolyzed and the monosaccharide components are analyzed …

Chemical oxygen demand (COD) of pulp process liquids

ISO 6060
The chemical oxygen demand (COD) of pulp process liquid is measured according to the ISO 6060 standard to evaluate the environmental burden of the water sample. The sample must be kept at a temperature …

Kappa number of paper, board, or pulp according to ISO 302

ISO 302
The Kappa number describes the lignin content or bleachability of pulp. With this test, the kappa number is determined as per the ISO 302 standard, which applies to all kinds of chemical and …

Lignin carbohydrate composition

During this lignin carbohydrate analysis, the lignin sample is first hydrolyzed, after which the acid-insoluble fraction is filtered and monomeric sugars are analyzed with ion chromatography. Monomeric sugars included in the analysis are glucose, …

Lignin sample elemental analysis package

Metal analysis package for a lignin sample including the following elements: Al, Cd, Co, Pb, Hg, P, Na, Zn, Sb, Ca, Cu, Mg, Mo, K, Ti, As, Cr, Fe, Mn, Ni, Si and V. The analysis is performed with ICP.
