The process of observing a material to determine its elemental or isotopic composition is called elemental analysis.
The substance that is being observed to identify and measure its chemical components is referred to as an analyte. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are used in determining the composition of a sample. Elemental Analysis, or EA, used in organic chemistry is referred to by what specific elements they look for in a sample. CHNX analysis can determine the mass fraction of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and heteroatoms, such as halogens, sulfurs, etc.) of a material. Elemental analyzers refer to the devices that perform these examinations.
EAs find elemental compositions of unknown substances by taking the material and converting it into simpler, known compounds. An example of this is finding carbon and hydrogen in organic compounds. The unknown organic compound is altered through combustion and the resulting particles are examined and weighted to determine their composition by mass. Though common, combustion is not the only method used to determine a material’s elemental makeup. Chemicals and radiation are two other methods that are well known in the quantitative and qualitative determination of an element. EAs can be organized by whether the analysis determines the type of element or by how much of a specific element is in a substance.

Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)

This process involves the quantitative analysis of chemical elements of material using spectroanalytical methods. AAS observes how optical radiation, or light, interacts with an analyzed sample. This technique is effective because free atoms absorb light at specific frequencies or wavelengths depending on their element. Before analysis can occur, the medium must first be atomized. The most common methods for this are by flame and electrothermal atomizers.
- Flame: The liquid or dissolved material is drawn into a pneumatic analytical nebulizer which converts the material from a liquid into a very fine mist. The aerosolized sample is then combined with flammable gases and introduced into a flame. The resulting substance is then analyzed for its elemental properties.
- Electrothermal: Analyte atomization is achieved by passing an electrical current through a device to heat it up to a specific temperature. This apparatus is called an electrothermal atomizer. Before a sample is aerosolized it is dried at low temperature and then is put into a graphite furnace to undergo chemical decomposition due to heat, or pyrolysis. The vaporized material can then be analyzed to determine the original substances elemental properties.
Sodium Fusion Test

Also known as Lassaigne’s test, this method looks for the presence of halogen, nitrogen, or sulfur in an organic compound. Consisting of placing the substance into a container with sodium in it and applying heat to it until the two different substances fuse together, the resulting intermixed material is then plunged into pure water and the existence of foreign substances can be detected. If the resulting mixture produced sodium halide, sodium cyanide, ferric ferrocyanide, sodium sulfide, or sodium thiocyanate the tested sample can be said to have nitrogen, sulfur, or halogen.

A chemical method for quantitative discernment of elemental sulfur, halogen, chlorine, and nitrogen in a sample. This method involves combustion analysis to determine what elements are in a substance. Conducted in an Erlenmeyer flask, the material is wrapped in attached to a stopper. Some absorption solution is poured into the container and it is filled with oxygen, the wrapped material is lit and the stopper is used to quickly seal the flask. The resulting solvent can then be tested chemically to establish the presence of other elements. This process is also known as Schöniger flask test or the oxygen flask method.

Element Analysis has been a useful scientific technique for a long time. Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier, an 18th-century French chemist, is considered the father of quantitative elemental analysis. Before Lavoisier chemistry was explained with qualitative observations like the idea that phlogiston, a fire quality, was what left a material once it was burned which is why there is less of it. Through a series of carefully measured experiments, Lavoisier proved that when combusted chemicals combine with their surroundings to form new mixtures of solids, gasses or liquids. Specifically, he was able to deduce that oxygen, when combined with normal air would produce water, concluding that water was actually a composite of hydrogen and oxygen. He would be a primary figure in the chemical revolution championing the study of chemistry through quantitative means.
Today EA is being used in biomedical, environmental, chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical fields. More recently it has found use beyond normal STEM sciences. Anthropologists, archeologists, and general historians are now utilizing these techniques to better understand the history of humans around the world. The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, one of the largest museums in the world, has an entire lab dedicated to these methods of study. In 2015, an article was published about the discovery of a black rock found in the Scladina Caves in Belgium linked to Neanderthal culture. Using the Field Museum’s EA labs the team discovered that the rocks must have been transported there from much further away by Neandertals for culturally significant reasons.
Elemental Analyzers have been a vital part of material determination and quantitative science for a long time. If you have been looking to use one but have not wanted to commit the large amount of cash required to purchase one, we can be of service.
We Offer CHNX Analyzer Leases to Fit Every Need
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
