Superior sample prep: Elemental analysis of Li-Ion battery materials
The quality and performance of Li-ion batteries requires elemental analysis of battery components in several steps of the value chain. For example, starting with raw materials, quantitation of the primary elements helps to determine the most appropriate extraction approach. In battery production, it is used to control impurities, as they directly impact the performance and lifespan
of the batteries. Elemental analysis is also used during recycling
to help purify valuable materials.
Sample preparation is the first fundamental step in ensuring reliable analysis and providing appropriate solutions for both ICP-OES and ICP-MS. Due to the variety of samples and their respective natures, from organic (like graphite) to inorganic (like ores), the sample prep protocol must ensure complete digestion to achieve the high-quality analyses required in this market.
