R&D Services - Analytical Research

R&D Services :: Analytical Research

The Analytical Division performs sponsored projects and in-house R&D at the intersection of routine analysis and analytical methods development for materials characterisation relevant to aluminium and other industry origin as well as R&D institutes.

  • Chemical physical and geomorphological characterization of bauxite
  • Wet and instrumental analysis of bauxite, hydrate, alumina, aluminium, alloys, and other raw material of metal production
  • Analytical Method Development for samples from aluminium industry and R&D origin
  • Analytical support to other divisions for projects and R&D
  • Training in wet chemical and instrumental analysis
  • Development of quantitative chromatographic method for bauxite, aluminium and aluminium alloys based on TLC-Densitometry

Ongoing R&D in the Area of Analytical Research
