Hexavalent Chromium Determination

Hexavalent chromium, despite its risk for human health, has been used in industries for a widespread application. The correct disposal of Cr (VI) added materials is crucial and fundamental to protect water and soil from dangerous contamination. Cr (VI) is reported by the Restriction Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has established a specific testing method (IEC 62321-7-2: 2017) to determine Cr (VI) in electronics and polymers. Milestone ETHOS X with MAXI 24 HP rotor was applied in this study to extract Cr(VI) in fully compliance with the official method
