Polymer characterization and deformulation are both popular topics in the scientific community. The benefits of modern thermal sample introduction systems continues to be one of the best kept secrets in the scientific community. Any type of polymer, synthetic or natural, of any molecular weight, can be analyzed. During this webinar, our partner Frontier Laboratories will describe the analytical techniques that make this possible.
Detailed chemical compositional information can be obtained with the sample introduction system that will be described using a standard single quadrupole GC–MS. Sample preparation is simple and often solids and viscous liquids can be analyzed directly. These techniques are both qualitative and quantitative with excellent precision and accuracy.
Application areas are broad and include polymers, additives, plastics, plasticizers, fire retardants, coatings, fibers, elastomers, adhesives, inks, paper, personal care products, forensics, oil shale, biomass and more.
