Loss on Ignition is a method used within inorganic analytical chemistry. The practice consists of ‘igniting’ (vigorous heating) a sample at a designated temperature which enables volatile substances within the sample material to escape, until the mass of the sample ceases to change. This process is often performed within air but may be done in another inert or reactive atmosphere.
