Image: A new method makes it possible to establish very rapidly what substances—proteins and others—a product in powder form contains. For example, a quick analysis of a washing powder developed for the Danish market revealed a high level of zeolite material, which is used to bind limestone from the hard water that is so prevalent in Denmark, while a sample from Morocco contained none of this material. Analysis of another washing powder revealed that “active oxygen is simply the compound sodium percarbonate, i.e., bonded hydrogen peroxide (Photo courtesy of Iben Julie Schmidt).
