Projects and Samples

Two major groups of projects:   

Identification - Quantification


Identification of various unknowns

  • Liquids
  • Solid
  • Plastics
  • Debris up to 50μm
  • Foreign bodies / foods
  • Foreign bodies / drugs
  • Foreign bodies / parts
  • Fats, oils, glycols
  • Paintings
  • Primers
  • Salts
  • Glues
  • Adhesives
  • Insulating Foams (UFFI)
  • Identification of compounds
  • Related to odors

Techniques used

  • Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Scanning microscopy with detector for elementary analyzes (SEM / SDE)

Quantification of unregulated compounds


Compounds:

  • Expected Additives (Presence and Concentration Check)
  • Targeted molecules (too numerous to name them all)
  • Alcohols and solvents in high concentrations (%)
  • Formaldehyde in matrices other than water
  • Ethanol in gasoline / diesel
  • Fats, oils, glycols

Matrices:

  • liquids
  • solids
  • plastics
  • Debris up to 50μm
  • Foreign bodies / foods
  • Foreign bodies / drugs
  • Foreign bodies / parts
  • Fats, oils, glycols
  • Water
