Equipment

Functions

Sample Requirement

1

Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)

To determine functional group of the compounds in a sample

Liquid/solid

2

UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

To determine the wavelenght and maximum absorbance of compounds

Liquid

3

Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

To determine chemical elements such as Cu, Cr, Mn, Mg, Ni, Fe, Zn, Pb, Ag and Cd using the absorption of optical radiation (light) by free atoms in the gaseous state

Liquid

4

Gas Chromatography (GC)

To identify chemical compounds of a sample

Non polar sample

5

Bomb calorimeter

To measure the heat of combustion of particular reaction

Solid/liquid

6

Thermogravimetry Analysis (TGA)

To determine selected characteristics of materials that exhibit either mass loss or gain due to decomposition, oxidation, or loss of volatiles (such as moisture)

Solid

7

Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)

To measure the amount of heat absorbed or released by a sample To measure how physical properties of a sample change, along with temperature against time

Solid
