Event Overview

In this webinar, methods for overcoming challenges related to sample preparation for elemental analysis are presented, including the first-hand experiences of an end user demonstrating how microwave digestion improved their digestion quality and detection limits. Also presented is a case study from a laboratory that has implemented a ‘total workflow’ approach to sample prep and the impacts that each of the components in their workflow have on their overall elemental analysis process.

The quality and performance of Li-ion batteries requires elemental analysis of battery components in several steps of the value chain—from the extraction of raw materials, to the production of advanced components, to the recycling of spent batteries.

Sample preparation is the first fundamental step for ensuring reliable elemental analyses, which relies on providing appropriate solutions for both ICP-OES and ICP-MS. Due to the variety of samples and their respective natures, from organic such as graphite, to inorganic such as ores, the sample prep protocol must ensure complete digestion to achieve the high-quality analyses required in the battery industry.
