Carbon analysis

Infrared spectrometry offers a sensitive analytical method to determine various carbon modifications such as
 

  • Total carbon (TC)
  • Total inorganic carbon (TIC), CO2
  • Total organic carbon (TOC)
  • carbide-bound carbon, free carbon

in highly diverse matrices like, for example, soils and rocks, oxidic raw and processed materials, carbides, and others.
