Capsule technology : benzene line for C-14 dating

Capsule technology was developed and published at 1996.

The technology system was designed for direct obtaining of acetylene from very small samples of organic matter or carbonates.

It allows producing benzene from very small quantities of acetylene (as low as 0.05 g) with the overall chemical yield higher than 92% for organic samples and higher than 96% for carbonates.

Scheme for direct reaction of small organic sample with lithium in stainless steel ampules to produce carbide

Capsule technology system is relatively inexpensive in operation and may fill the gap, arising between conventional radiocarbon techniques requiring samples containing more than (exceeding) 1 g of carbon and the AMS technique dedicated to milligram-sized samples.

Advantages of capsule technology:

Low cost;

High chemical yield;

High capacity.

Microliner technology for small benzene samples

Microliner technology to produce benzene samples in Radiocarbon Dating. It is included in processing of small samples. It is simple in use.

It highly effectively converts datable Carbon into benzene. It is compatible with hydrolysis system for microsamples.

This technology is applicable for carbon dating of any kind of sample material.
