Identification of Liquid and Solid Materials in Processes

In the materials and process industries, the ability to accurately and efficiently identify products and components is crucial to ensuring high quality and smooth operation of the processes. RISE can handle and analyze various types of samples, whether they are in liquid or solid forms.


Through precise identification of products and components, the industry can ensure that materials are used correctly in processes and that any inaccuracies or deviations are detected and addressed at an early stage. This is crucial for minimizing production disruptions, preventing quality issues, and ensuring that processes comply with all necessary standards and regulations. Effective identification of products and components is also important for ensuring traceability and documentation throughout the entire production chain.

RISE has the capability to handle and analyze various types of samples, whether they are in liquid or solid forms. Below are some of these assignments described in more detail:

Identification of organic molecules: Identification and characterization of organic molecules in liquids, gases, or solid materials. This may include determining the structure, composition, and properties of organic compounds.

Compound identification: Identification of organic molecules and other types of chemical compounds, including inorganic compounds or metal complexes.

Qualitative/quantitative analysis: Determination of the amount of specific substances or compounds in a sample. Qualitative analysis focuses on establishing the presence or absence of a substance, while quantitative analysis involves determining the amount of a substance in a sample, usually through comparison with calibration standards.

Low detection limits: Detecting and quantifying very small amounts of substances or compounds in a sample, especially when they are relevant to health or environmental issues.

Microanalysis of spots: Examining and analyzing small areas or spots on a sample to obtain detailed information about local properties or contaminants.

Lignans: Naturally occurring phenolic compounds found in plants.

Extractive substances - including group separation: Extracting and analyzing chemical substances or components from a sample matrix. Group separation - separating and identifying different classes of compounds or substances in a sample matrix to facilitate their analysis and characterization.

Organic Acids - An important group of chemical compounds that occur naturally in many different materials and substances. These acids can have different chemical properties and are often used in various industries and applications. We can analyze levulinic acid, ethanol, glycerol, lactic acid, formic acid, acetic acid, furan derivatives.

We also conduct analyses of organic acids in black liquors, which is a byproduct from various chemical processes, especially in the pulp and paper industry. By measuring and monitoring the levels of organic acids in black liquors, we can evaluate the efficiency of the processes and identify any problems or deviations that may affect product quality and process stability.

We can help with Reach Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals)

To ensure compliance with the Reach Regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), our analyses can be crucial for assessing and managing risks of chemicals and products covered by this legislation.

Examples of analyses and activities: chemical composition, toxicological tests, ecotoxicological tests, product identification and classification, risk assessments.

Methods, Instuments and Expertise

One of the most widely used techniques for this purpose is gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). This method combines two powerful analytical techniques, gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS), to provide detailed information about the composition and structure of various compounds and substances.

Gas chromatography separates a mixture of compounds into its components based on their chemical properties and affinity to a stationary phase as they are transported through a mobile phase (gaseous medium). Mass spectrometry is then used to identify and quantify the separated compounds by measuring their mass-to-charge ratio and generating a unique mass spectrum for each compound.

The instrument is particularly useful for analyzing organic substances due to its high sensitivity and ability to detect even small amounts of pollutants and complex compounds.

Our GC analyses can be performed for a variety of purposes, including:

Quality control: We can use GC to monitor and ensure the quality of various products and materials across different industries, from food and pharmaceuticals to petrochemical products and environmental samples.

Process control: By monitoring and analyzing components in process streams, we can optimize processes and ensure they meet desired specifications and requirements.

Environmental analysis: We can use GC to detect and quantify pollutants and hazardous substances in air, water, and soil, which is crucial for environmental monitoring and protective measures.

Research and development: In research and development, GC is an indispensable method for exploring new materials, chemical compounds, and processes, enabling the identification and characterization of new substances and investigating their properties and behavior.

Our experienced staff has extensive knowledge and expertise in GC techniques and methods and is dedicated to delivering high-quality results and tailored solutions that meet our customers' specific needs and expectations. With our focus on quality, reliability, and innovation, RISE is well-equipped to handle any GC-related challenges and projects.
