Equipment and facilities

Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS)

The instrument is housed in The Department of Earth Sciences in a class 1000 cleanroom. Further information.

Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer (ICP-AES)

Analysis of a wide range of elements (list available) in solution, sequentially. Detection limits vary from element to element and depend upon method, nature of sample and standards used. Further information.

Ion Chromatography

Determination of inorganic and organic anions in aqueous samples, mostly natural waters. Further information.

Total Organic Carbon Analyser

Dissolved Carbon Analyser is used to measure dissolved carbon in water samples. Total Carbon and Inorganic Carbon can be determined. Further information.

Chemistry Laboratory

Facilities for sample preparation and analytical method development available to both undergraduate and postgraduates. Further information.

XRF Instrument

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is a non-destructive analytical technique used to identify and determine the concentrations of elements present in solid, powdered and liquid samples. Further information.
