The microanalytical service in the Department/Centre is provided by a Leco CHNS model 932 analyser operating through combustion. Samples are normally supplied as pure powders with at least 5 mg of material.
Further information regarding preliminary studies of samples, conditions for the preparation and submission of samples or details of characterisation, should be solicited from Professor Maria João Queiroz. The exact cost of analysis and probable date of completion will be indicated after the conditions of characterisation are established. All samples must be accompanied by an <analysis request form> downloaded from this page.
