Identification and Quantification of Microplastics using Micro-Furnace Pyrolysis-GC/MS

We’ll demonstrate how a micro-furnace pyrolysis-GC/MS system enables the identification and quantification of microplastics contaminants in environmental samples.

Plastic wastes flowing into the ocean are degraded by various mechanical and chemical forces, such as ocean waves and photo-oxidation by sunlight. These waste materials are transformed into small fragments. The fragments less than 5 mm in size are called microplastics. The negative impact to the environment caused by microplastics have attracted great global concern due to risks to ecosystems and human health. Scientists and researchers in both the public health and private sector are in pursuit of analytical measurement technologies that can deliver accurate quantitation and identification of microplastics. A growing number of microplastics researchers are turning to a powerful analytical solution that interfaces a micro-furnace pyrolysis system with a GC/MS instrument. During this webinar, we’ll demonstrate the power of the micro-furnace Frontier EGA/PY-3030D pyrolysis-GC/MS system, and how this solution enables the identification and quantification of microplastic contaminants in environmental samples.

Key Webinar Take-Aways:

  • Learn how Pyrolysis-GC/MS is used in conjugation with other analytical techniques for microplastics analysis
  • Discover how the micro-furnace Pyrolysis-GC/MS system can be utilized to accurately identify and quantify microplastics in various samples.
  • See a live demonstration of F-Search engine interpretation libraries for identifying and quantifying microplastics polymers.
