    Best method for the analysis of vitamins and metals in health supplements?

    I am looking at analysing a range of vitamin supplements in order to quantify both their water soluble vitamin and metal content. I intend to use LC-MS for the vitamins and FAAS for the metals. Are these the best methods would you say or is there a better method? Also I am not 100% sure on the...

    Metal Vapor Lamp

    My professor just asked us why would the metal vapor lamps go bad prematurely, to my knowledge, it's because of excessive voltage required to start the lamp over time? Is there anything else that you guys can think of that would make these lamps go bad? Thank you :)

    Neutralizing a metal nitrate solute with Sodium Hydroxide

    La(NO3)3*6H20; Sr(NO3)2; Co(NO3)2*6H20; Fe(NO3)3*9H20; Dissolved in 300 mL H20 (DI), heated to 70C, stirring to dissolve into solution. The problem is that the resulting solution pH is too low for a pH meter to read, and indicator strips (0-3) indicate less than, or at least equal to, 0...
