Re: Quality and Purity

08/07/2011 3:50 PM

Quality is conformance to specifications.

Purity has to do with the composition or makeup of a substance- it is a measure of the relative freedom from contaminants.

Quality is a general term applicable to a broad range activities.

Purity is a more specific term elated to chemical composition of materials.
