Safe handling of Organic Solvents in Atomic Absorption spectroscopy

Water is the safest solvent that you can be use in Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy but many applications require use of organic solvents. Handling and usage of organic solvents requires strict adherence to safe practices to prevent laboratory mishaps. Organic solvents can pose safety hazards mainly due to two main factors, namely, toxicity and flammability. Measures […]

Organic Solvents in Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy

Water is a universal solvent and is used in a majority of atomic absorption spectroscopic applications. Benefits of using water as solvent: Non-Toxic so no toxic fumes on ignition Non-flammable Constant physical parameters such as viscosity, density and specific Heat Apart from Its Safe Use constant physical parameters permit optimum use and design of nebulizers, […]
