From July 25-29, the 11th National Conference on Environmental Chemistry (NCEC 2022) was held in Harbin, China. Nearly 5,000 experts in the field of environmental chemistry from Nanjing University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, and other universities and related research institutes gathered to discuss the development of environmental chemistry disciplines, promote academic research cooperation, and accelerate the construction of environmental chemistry disciplines and talent training.
CIQTEK attended this conference and introduced the solutions of electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR or ESR) spectroscopy in the field of environmental chemistry to the delegates.

With the theme of "Innovative Environmental Science" and the purpose of "Innovation, Participation, Cooperation and Foresight", this year's conference set up 58 sessions and various topics around different fields such as environmental analysis, public health, environmental safety, pollution control, green and low-carbon, including special sessions for major research programs of the Foundation, Young Scholars Forum and Frontier Forum of Environmental Science.
As one of the global crises, environmental pollution is affecting human life and health at all times. Among atmospheric pollutants, water pollutants, and soil pollutants, there is an emerging class of environmentally harmful substances - Environmentally Persistent Free Radicals (EPFRs). EPFRs are ubiquitous in the environment and can induce the generation of reactive oxide species (ROS), which cause cell and body damage and are one of the causes of cancer, and are highly biohazardous. EPR (ESR) technology can detect EPFRs and analyze them quantitatively to find the source of the hazard and solve the underlying problem.

CIQTEK EPR (ESR) spectroscopy
The CIQTEK EPR (ESR) spectroscopy provides a non-destructive analytical method for the direct detection of paramagnetic materials. It can study the composition, structure, and dynamics of magnetic molecules, transition metal ions, rare earth ions, ion clusters, doped materials, defective materials, free radicals, metalloproteins, and other substances containing unpaired electrons, and can provide in situ and non-destructive information on the microscopic scale of electron spins, orbitals, and nuclei. It has a wide range of applications in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, materials, and industry.
The CIQTEK benchtop EPR200M features high sensitivity, high accuracy, and high stability; integrated instrument control software, data processing software, and spectrum fitting software; supports manual and automated tuning; built-in specimen for accurate g-value determination and quantitative EPR (ESR) measurement, and can be equipped with multifunctional accessories such as variable temperature measurement, automatic corner turner, and in-situ illumination.
The EPR200M provides a cost-effective, low-maintenance, simple, and easy-to-use experience for every EPR (ESR) experiment user. Notably, the EPR200M requires no on-site installation, only online service to solve all installation and adjustment problems.
