Wet Chemistry

Wet Chemistry

2021-07-1926:02

In this podcast, Patricia Atkins is joined with Spex Chemist Brij Tonk. Patricia and Brij touch on how Spex has grown over the years and the basics behind wet chemistry.Analytical Chemistry is the study of chemical composition, structure and behavior of matter by separating, identifying (qualitative analysis) and quantifying (quantitative analysis) matter using instruments, chemical and physical methods.  Analytical chemistry consists of classical methods (i.e. wet chemical methods) and instrumental methods (i.e. spectrometry, chromatography etc.). Wet chemistry or classical analysis are forms of analytical chemistry that use proven historical (classical) methods to determine the identity, amount or form of an analyte or element using wet techniques. Wet chemistry is sometimes called bench chemistry since many methods or assays occur at the laboratory bench and use laboratory glassware or plastic-ware.  In classical methods, identification can be based on differences in physical properties (i.e. color, melting point, boiling point etc.). Instrumental methods rely on the calculation of an analyte against a standard of a chemical or physical parameter (i.e. elemental spectra, uv absorption, mass determination etc.).Over the past few decades, many classical analyses have incorporated an automated or instrumental component (pH meters, automatic titrators, density meters etc.)  that blur the divide between classical methods and instrumental analysis. Many simple instruments are still considered to be part of classical analysis.Wet chemistry methods are grouped into qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative methods determine the identity or presence of compounds, functional groups or elements using changes in a physical or chemical parameter which cannot be measured. These changes include color, smell, physical state or appearance.  Examples of qualitative wet chemistry include flame tests and other chemical tests such as:  Hoffman’s test etc. Quantitative methods determine the amount or concentration of a target by calculating the physical or chemical changes observed in qualitative methods.  These methods often use simple probes such as pH meters or measured titration to calculate a value.Hosted by Patricia Atkins, Senior Applications Scientist from SpexStay connected with Spex! Certified Reference Materials: https://www.spexcertiprep.com/Sample Preparation Equipment: https://www.spexsampleprep.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/SpexScienceYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SPEXCertiPrepYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/sampleprepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Blog: https://www.spexsampleprep.com/blogs.aspxInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexscienceLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexscience Support the show (http://www.spexcertiprep.com)

Accuracy in analytical testing starts at the very beginning with sampling and sample preparation prior to testing. If sample collection processes are flawed, then the final answers will be biased. The basis of accuracy of sampling and testing often rests on two inter-related and fundamental concepts: representative samples and homogeneity. Representative samples are selected to accurately reflect the larger group and should represent the characteristics of the group. Ideally representative samples are homogeneous or similar in nature but when that is not possible the best attempts must be made to achieve samples which represent most of the characteristics of the larger grouping.In the approaches to sampling agricultural crops such as cannabis, there are many factors which can influence and create bias in sampling. The type and area of sampling can dramatically change the results. Environmental factors, climate, sunlight, exposure to chemicals both intentionally and unintentionally can alter results for a host of target compounds from mycotoxins to cannabinoids. In this podcast, we will look at the traditional methods of agricultural sampling and how different target compounds found in cannabis products can be influence by growing practices, environmental factors and choice & timing of sampling.Hosted by Patricia Atkins from SPEX CertiPrepStay connected with SPEX CertiPrep!Website: https://www.spexcertiprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/spexcertiprepTwitter: https://twitter.com/SPEXCompaniesYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SPEXCertiPrepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexcompanies/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexcompaniesStay connected with SPEX SamplePrep!Website: https://www.spexsampleprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SPEXSamplePrep/Twitter: https://twitter.com/SPEXCompaniesYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/sampleprepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexcompanies/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexcompaniesSupport the show (http://www.spexcertiprep.com)

Speciation

Speciation

2020-10-1314:11

Speciation is defined as: ‘the distribution of an element amongst defined chemical species in a system’ (IUPAC). Chemical species include isotopic composition, electronic or oxidation states and molecular structures. Speciation analysis is the analytical process of identifying and/or measuring the amounts of one or more individual chemical species in a sample.Chemical and elemental species are important in many fields of science and health. Human health and nutrition can be influenced by the presence or absence of certain chemical species such as iron, selenium, arsenic, and mercury. Some chemical species are potentially toxic and are targets of concern. In this presentation, learn about the importance and role of chemical species.Hosted by Patricia Atkins from SPEX CertiPrep.Stay connected with SPEX CertiPrep!Website: https://www.spexcertiprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/spexcertiprepTwitter: https://twitter.com/SPEXCompaniesYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SPEXCertiPrepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexcompanies/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexcertiprep/Stay connected with SPEX SamplePrep!Website: https://www.spexsampleprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SPEXSamplePrep/Twitter: https://twitter.com/SPEXCompaniesYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/sampleprepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexcompanies/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexsampleprep/Support the show (http://www.spexcertiprep.com)

When Laboratories receive material for testing, it is often not in a state where it can be directly tested. It requires sample preparation techniques to expose or make possible the extraction of the desired analytes. For many samples, this can be a difficult process as their composition and physical properties make it hard to grind/mill/crush or otherwise reduce particle size and expose surface area. In this podcast, Patti and Tristan introduce the equipment and techniques for cryogenic grinding applications and discuss the fundamentals, methodology and versatility of the SPEX SamplePrep Freezer/Mill.Hosted by Patricia Atkins of SPEX CertiPrep and Tristan DeBona of SPEX SamplePrep.View SPEX SamplePrep's Freezer/MillStay connected with SPEX CertiPrep!Website: https://www.spexcertiprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/spexcertiprepTwitter: https://twitter.com/SPEXCertiPrepYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SPEXCertiPrepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexcertiprep/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexcertiprep/Stay connected with SPEX SamplePrep!Website: https://www.spexsampleprep.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SPEXSamplePrep/Twitter: https://twitter.com/spexsampleprepYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/sampleprepBlog: https://spexcertiprepblog.wordpress.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spexsampleprep/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/spexsampleprep/Support the show (http://www.spexcertiprep.com)
