estrategias para opciones financieras WEBINAR: Expand Your Environmental Labs Efficiency and Capability for Trace Metals and Organic Pollutant Determination in Environmental Matrices
http://www.judithschlosser.ch/?ityrew=extrader&272=28 Event Overview
Large quantities of heavy metals and organic pollutants enter the ecosystems and are released into the environments via industrialization processes, sewage sludge, atmospheric deposits and agricultural practices such as the application of pesticides and fertilizers. Techniques using microwave technology can aid in the testing of environmental samples affected by the above practices.

Milestone invites you to attend this Webinar, where we will introduce effective techniques for safe and rapid microwave digestion for metals determination, direct mercury determination and extraction of organic pollutants in environmental samples.
- Sample preparation using microwave acid digestion techniques are well-established procedures and represent an essential tool for any environmental lab.
- Direct mercury analysis, as described in EPA Method 7473, is the alternative to elaborate preparation procedures and has been used successfully to determine the total mercury content of thousands of environmental samples in hundreds of labs.
- The extraction of organic pollutants from solid environmental matrices has traditionally been done using non-instrumental approaches, e.g. Soxhlet extraction. Recent developments have seen the possibility of extraction using instrumental techniques, namely microwave-assisted extraction.
