Capital Equipment

Type of Equipment:

STM / AFM (Scanning Tunneling Microscop / Atomic Force Microscop)

Location:
Department of Electrochemistry, Karnegijeva 4/III
Manufacturer - Model:
Veeco - Nanoscope III d

Short description:

STM is able to detect the atomic structure of the sample. Area to be analyzed is from 50 x 50 to 500 x 500nm.
Limitation: it is possible to analyze only conductive or semiconductive samples. AFM is able to determine the elasticity, hardness and continuity of polymer, metal and other films on various substrates. Area to be analyzed is from 500 nm to 500 x 125 x 125 micron.
There are no limitations regardinh the nature of the samples, it is possible to analyze the non-conductive materials. The analysis is also possible in the liquid phase or in city.

Microwave digestion system: ETHOS 1 Advanced microwave digestion system

Location: Department of Chemistry, Studentski trg 12-16 Belgrade

Manufacturer – Model: Milestone, Italy, 2008. Description: Microwave digestion system is equipped with HPR-1000/10S segmented rotor operating under high pressure (100 bar) and high temperature (up to 240 °C). Rotor possesses 10 slots (segments) with Teflon cuvettes for acid digestion/dissolution of samples. QS-40 quartz insets are a special addition used for small sample volumes and maximal protection from contamination. The device is capable of rapid total dissolution/mineralization of all kinds of samples (including silicates), extraction using organic solvents, and microwave-hydrothermal synthesis. All microwave-assisted processes are considerably more effective and faster (maximum process duration 30 min). Possibility of contamination has been minimized.
