Application Note Technology, Digestion
Microwave Digestion of PET (without pressure monitoring)
PET can be digested in an acid solution using the Berghof speedwave ENTRY. For this digestion process, DAP-60K vessels are needed. Furthermore, an acid solution consisting of HNO3 and H2SO4 has to be prepared. The exact mixture and the corresponding temperature program of the speedwave ENTRY are described in the application note.
