What’s in the water – analytical chemistry helps everyone

Analytical chemistry of water What do you think of when you hear the term "Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy"?  A CSI episode? College Chemistry? Or maybe nothing at all? Most likely you are not familiar with Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy or...

Necessity of Using VPD-ICPMS Technique in Semiconductor manufacturing

Implementing smaller device dimensions requires cleaner chemicals and, more importantly, cleaner production processes.  One example of a potential contamination source is polymeric seals often found in process chambers.  Over time, in aggressive environments such as...

What is Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)?

Analyzing small and volatile molecules is made not only possible but simple with Gas chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). GC-MS is the separation technique of choice for smaller volatile and semi-volatile organic molecules such as hydrocarbons, alcohols, and...

The benefits you get from chemical analysis of materials

You do not always know what something is by just looking at it. Sterling silver, steel, and platinum look similar...yet their prices tell you they are very different indeed. Chemical analysis characterizes the chemical components in a material which helps to identify...
