We provide solutions to some real world chemistry problems. For example:

Fuel contamination – handling errors leading to a mix of fuel types. Analysis / profiling can indicate treatment advice.

Oil characterisation – Boiling range, Identification of volatile contaminants, [Nordtest], Acidic/basic polar components, Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) components.

Smoke taint – contamination of food products (vegetables, grains etc) by smoke from local sources such as bonfires.

Bleach strength – is that bleach really as strong as has been claimed ?

Packaging contamination – sea water is a common issue where packaging has been on board a ship. Other contaminants can be looked for.
