PFASs (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) are a class of almost 10.000 organofluorines. These man-made compounds - also designated «forever chemicals» – are highly persistent and at least some of them tend to accumulate and biomagnify in the environment. For that reason, more and more of these compounds are declared toxic as they pose a risk to human and environmental health. In a joint eLearning session, Theresa Steurer and Iris Reber from Metrohm International Headquarters,...

This eLearning session will discuss the basics of Karl Fischer titration chemistry and the two types of titration, volumetric and coulometric. We will also discuss why one might be preferred over another and the reagents used for both volumetric and coulometric titrations. We will also cover method development and validation strategy. Finally we will provide some tips and tricks to help you be successful with your Karl Fischer titrations.  Participants will learn: An overview of the...

Due to contaminants complexity and the low amount at which pollutants are usually present in environmental samples, their analytical determination can be particularly challenging. Conventional sample preparation methods make use of large solvent volumes and involve intensive sample manipulation that can lead to sample contamination or losses of analytes. Even modern extraction technologies are expensive and offer limited productivity. To overcome these disadvantages, Milestone developed a rap...
