WHY ELEMENT SPECIATION?

The toxicity, bioavailability and mobility of certain elements are to a large extent determined by the form in which it is present. Consequently, a metal speciation analysis can provide valuable extra information compared to traditional total concentrations. Over the last few years, new legislation and guidelines have also started introducing threshold values for organotin compounds, inorganic arsenic, methyl mercury and more.
