General description

Accurate analytic results in UV/VIS and infrared spectroscopy depend on the use of very pure solvents for sample preparation. The Uvasol<TMSYMBOL></TMSYMBOL> solvents range has been specially designed for spectroscopy and other applications requiring solvents of the highest spectral purity. The refinement process allows a greater degree of security in applications and avoids misinterpretation of analytical results caused by traces of UV, IR and fluorescence contamination. Uvasol<TMSYMBOL></TMSYMBOL> solvents offer best UV transmittance. In all specifications the minimum transmittance for 5 typical wavelengths are identified.

Application


  • Trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene and carbon tetrachloride in an urban atmosphere: mixing ratios and temporal patterns.: This study investigates the atmospheric concentrations of tetrachloroethylene and related compounds, highlighting their temporal patterns and implications for environmental monitoring and regulatory frameworks (de Blas et al., 2013).

  • Preparation of gas cylinder standards for the measurement of trace levels of benzene and tetrachloroethylene.: This article discusses the preparation of gas cylinder standards for accurate measurement of trace levels of tetrachloroethylene, which is crucial for environmental and industrial monitoring (Schmidt et al., 1983).

  • Application of a monolithic silica capillary adsorbent for the preconcentration of airborne trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene.: This paper presents a novel method using monolithic silica capillary adsorbents for the preconcentration and subsequent analysis of airborne tetrachloroethylene, enhancing detection capabilities in environmental monitoring (Chang et al., 2006).

  • Trace determination of tetrachloroethylene in natural waters by direct aqueous injection high-pressure liquid chromatography.: This research provides a method for the trace determination of tetrachloroethylene in natural waters using high-pressure liquid chromatography, crucial for monitoring water quality and assessing environmental impact (Kummert et al., 1978).
