White-Powder Unknowns
From Monday, February 25 2013
To Friday, March 01 2013
Every day

Sponsor: Hooke College of Applied Sciences

Website: http://www.hookecollege.com/courses/course.asp?COURSE_ID=80
Description: The White Powders course teaches students how to identify white powders using several microscopical identification techniques including: polarized light microscopy (PLM), fluorescence microscopy, spot tests, solubility tests, flame tests, and thermal microscopy. The white powder sample set used for this course was derived from real-world examples that were either described in media accounts or found by First Responders at actual incident sites. Students learn how to identify over 60 white powder samples by first studying particle morphology, optical characteristics, and chemical reactions, followed by UV fluorescence observations. Each student has access to the free online McCrone Atlas of Microscopic Particles. The Atlas contains PLM and SEM images, descriptions, and IR and Raman spectra of over 60 fully characterized white powders.
