[Extract] The basic principles of elemental analysis by dry combustion are straightforward. An accurately weighed aliquot of a sample is combusted to decompose it into gases that are then separated from each other and from other undesired components of the sample. The analytes of interest are then quantified through comparison to standards of known composition and the results presented as a percentage by mass of the original sample.
