Compositional Analysis


Compositional analysis technique is mainly used to determine the components of an unknown material, to obtain the impurity profiles and to identify differences between similar materials. An unknown component can often be the underlying cause of difficult problems so identifying the presence of unexpected material can assist with product development and resolve manufacturing issues. In addition, the concentration of a specific component, which play an important role for the whole product, should be determined through compositional analysis in order to better know the final performance of the product. Therefore, exact compositional analysis of a sample will do favor to solve chemical problems, aid materials development, as well as ensure the quality of final product, which is very critical for both academic research and industrial development.

Chemical composition analysis may include a single method or a combination of various analytical methods to achieve a full image of the right chemical structures and concentrations in a sample. Alfa Chemistry has developed considerable expertise in identifying and characterizing the chemical composition of a sample through the use of our state-of-the-art instruments. We are able to provide reliable services of chemical composition identification for research in the fields of battery manufacturing, semiconductors, biomass energy and other related energy areas.
