Application Note: Characterization of Soil Pollution by TG-IR Analysis
29 November 2010

This application note demonstrates that not only is TG-IR capable of determining the quantity of diesel present in soil, but the minor fraction of biodiesel in the fuel could also be detected. For soil analysis, a key advantage of TG-IR over other methods is that no sample preparation or solvent extraction step is required, giving a much faster and more convenient analysis.
