Ion Chromatography Improves Analysis of Lithium Ion Batteries!

analysis of lithium ion battery electrolytes

It does seem I have fuel cells on my mind but when I found that I had not written about a really well received webinar on the use of multiple chromatography techniques for the analysis of lithium ion batteries, I had to feature it before I forgot again! The webinar is now on-demand so you can play it at your leisure once you fill out a quick registration form. Click the image on the right or the title of the webinar below to access the webinar.

Chromatography Monitoring as per U.S. EPA UCMR 3: Two Webinars

UCMR 3 inorganic and organic contaminant analysis

The two-parts of this upcoming webinar series presented in this post cover multiple chromatography techniques (gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, ion chromatography, and Liquid Chromatography Electrospray Ionization Tandem Mass Spectrometry) for the monitoring of inorganic and organic contaminants as per the U.S. EPA's Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 3 (UCMR 3) (link to U.S. EPA page). Both webinars will feature a customer case study from Eurofins Eaton Analytical Inc.; Dr. Andy Eaton, Vice President and Technical Director at Eurofins Inc. will be in a discussion with Dr. Richard F. Jack, our NA Environmental Market Manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.

Chromatography Data System: Five Webinars to Speed up your Analysis!

Did you know that over-the-counter and internet weight loss drugs can contain undeclared drugs or chemical ingredients that could be harmful? The U.S. FDA page, titled, Questions and Answers about FDA’s Initiative Against Contaminated Weight Loss Products, lists 72 weight-loss products along with the undeclared drug and/or chemical ingredient (link to page).

Gas Chromatography Biofuels Research Studies

When I received a link to this newstory, titled, From chardonnay to cabernet, malbec to merlot: What's in your wine? (link to article) featuring the analysis of pesticides and other contaminants in wine from one of our marketing communications specialists, my first question was: which of our instruments does the testing company use? Of course, we were pretty thrilled that one of our gas chromatography systems was used in the analysis.
