General description

EMD Millipore offers EMPARTA grade solvents for routine tasks in analytical laboratories. EMPARTA grade solvents offer fewer test parameters than EMSURE, yet are still of high quality. EMPARTA solvents meet ACS requirements, making them ideal for a wide range of analytical applications.


Acetone′s luminesence intensity is dependent upon the solution components . The absorption of UV light by acetone, results in its photolysis and the production of radials .
