Palladium is a common catalyst in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. Pills and tablets are ground to homogeneous powder to test for any retained spent Pd as well as other heavy metals such as unwanted Cd, Pb, Hg and Br as part of the quality control process. The Pd is also monitored during the recovery of the catalysts material. Cellulose is a common medium for pharmaceuticals and testing is often done in pills ground to powder or cellulose powder itself. For quality control and manufacturing purposes, Rigaku NEX DE EDXRF analyzer is an excellent tool for the measurement of trace heavy elements and other elements of interest in pharmaceutical products.
