An Ultra Clean Chemical Laboratory (UCCL) has been built at IRMM to allow reliable, contamination free chemical treatment of samples prior to inorganic elemental or isotopic analysis. The concept is intended to guarantee a dust-free environment as well as resistance to corrosion even if hot, concentrated mixtures of acids are continuously used, thus establishing not a clean or dust-free room but a clean laboratory. The excellent air quality is demonstrated both by particle measurements and the analysis of acids purified by subboiling distillation in the UCCL.
