What I want to do or know

Hey everyone, I was hoping to ask those of you prototyping if there is any quick way to measure for any of the following compounds:

1-naphthol, naphthalene, Sevin, tarry residue, mercury, toxic organochlorines, volatile organochlorine compounds, chromium, copper, nickel, lead, hexachloroethane, hexachlorobutadiene, or the pesticide HCH.

Thank you in advance for your help!




Hi Rajan! I'd love to know if you were able to figure out how to measure these compounds using the spectrometer. We are looking to measure cadmium, lead, mercury, and chromium.

Hi @rajanzaveri, What sorts of concentrations and what media are you interested in measuring? Do you have more specific constraints for measurements, such as cost, access to a laboratory, etc?
