Analysis of organic compounds in materials and products

Examples of organic substances are additives such as dyes, biocides, surfactants, preservatives, consistency sensors, flame retardants (in, for example, plastics and electronics), plasticizers (phthalates) or other additives in plastics and rubber.


The results of the analyzes can be compared against different EU directives (eg. REACH, RoHS and the toy directive, cosmetics regulation) and different chemical lists (SinList, TEDX etc.) to determine whether the material / product contains CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic, reproductive toxicants) substances, SVHC substances (Substances of Very High Concern) or classified as PBT / vPvB substance (Persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic / very persistent and very bioaccumulative).

Some functional chemicals that have been noted for environmental reasons include PCBs, PAHs, phthalates, perfluorinated substances (PFOA / PFAS), Bisphenol A (BPA) and various volatile and / or odoriferous substances.

Functional chemicals of biological origin can sometimes vary slightly in composition or being sensitive to heating or otherwise affecting the molecular structure. Therefore, quality control and other characterization of biomolecules place high demands on the laboratory.

Organic substances can be detected in various media such as water, tissues, biomull, particles, waste, air or other gas mixtures as well as in different materials and goods. The substances often occur in very low levels.


RISE has several advanced instruments for detecting, characterizing and quantifying organic substances, including:

• UV-VIS-NIR spectrometer with integrating sphere

• Infrared wavelength range (FTIR) spectrometer

• Liquid chromatographs (LC) with various detectors (MS-MS, UV, RI)

• Gas chromatographs (GC) with different detectors (MS, ECD, FID, TCD)

• XRF, surface layer analysis of a material's elemental composition


Delivery according to agreement and continuous dialogue with the customer.
