Halogens in a polymer sample using Metrohm Combustion IC in accordance with RoHS

The maintenance of limit values for various hazardous substances in electrical and electronic instruments (RoHS) requires that the halogen content in various organic materials be reduced to a minimum. There is a great demand for halogen-free polymers in this connection. Metrohm Combustion Ion Chromatography with flame sensor and Inline Matrix Elimination is an indispensable method for halogen determination. The polymer material investigated contains up to 1% halogens.
