Li-ion Batteries: Sample Prep Guidelines for Elemental Analysis

The quality and performance of Li-ion batteries requires elemental analysis of battery components in several steps of the value chain: for raw materials, in battery production, and also during recycling.
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.
This webinar will address the challenges related to sample preparation by considering several matrices encountered in the Li-ion battery value chain.
Practical guidance will be provided for method development by exploring the most critical sample prep factors for ICP-OES and ICP-MS analysis, such as sample mass, temperature, pressure, and acid compatibility. By considering a total-workflow approach to sample prep, additional opportunities for improving lab productivity, quality, and safety will be demonstrated.
