Physico-chemical property measurement testing for liquids and solids providing essential data for industry
Physical chemistry testing is carried out to attain regulatory compliance and can also be used for the purposes of research and development, product development and technical support.
Registration and compliance with an authority such as ECHA and full characterisation and identity testing are services which are only available from expert sources.
Intertek provides physico-chemical property data for pharmaceutical R&D support, product development and technical support for many materials and industries. ‘Hazardous’ Phys-chem properties are used mainly for the purposes of safe handling and Chemical Hazard Communication (HazCom). Physico-chemical testing forms a significant part of the data package for GHS, Canadian GHS, REACH, Biocide Product Regulation and the Registration of chemical substances in non-EC countries and can be vital in designing the appropriate toxicological and ecotoxicological test packages.
Intertek performs physical chemistry tests according to the REACH Annex VII (Regulation (EC) 440/2008) and OECD Guidelines.
Physical Chemistry Data Package:
Melting Temperature/Freezing Temperature – OECD 102/EU A1
Intertek also provides full characterisation and identity testing. These tests can be used to provide technical data such as identity, purity, impurity profile which are important when planning testing and can be used to quantify the phys-chem tests:
Ultraviolet and Visible Absorption Spectroscopy (UV/vis)
Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)
Mass Spectrometry (MS)
Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC, LCMS and LC-MS/MS detection)
Metals Analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy (ICP)
