Advantages of Instrumental Methods
- Advancements in technology and computing have allowed for the development of instruments designed to analyse chemical substances.
- Methods of analysis include X-ray, Infra-Red and Mass Spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography and Flame Photometry.
- These analytical techniques require modern day instruments which are a vital part of busy chemistry laboratories.
- The advantage of using these instruments over more traditional methods include:
- They provide greater accuracy.
- They are faster and easier to use.
- Modern instruments are very sensitive and can work with very small sample sizes.
