Frontiers of Material Characterization Using Pyrolysis-GC/MS
April 17, 2019 | Case Western Reserve University
Learn how Pyrolysis GC/MS technique can be used for performing reverse engineering, material characterization, failure analysis for supply chain, and comparative analysis.
Join us for an upcoming seminar on Material Characterization
Today, analytical pyrolysis encompasses much more than simple flash pyrolysis of polymeric materials. Virtually any liquid or solid material can be characterized using an array of techniques, all of which are designed into a modern day, multi-mode pyrolysis system. Using the Frontier Multi-Mode Pyrolyzer, volatiles, additives, oligomers, as well as polymeric, and heavier components can be analyzed. This technique is also broadening the range of samples that can be analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry as any solid sample can be introduced into the Multi-Mode pyrolyzer without any need for solvent, solvent extractions, or pretreatments prior to the analysis.
The seminar will cover the following application topics: material characterization, reverse engineering, failure analysis, contamination analysis, and ASTM method in various industries, such as paints and coatings, 3D printing, rubbers & plastics, and nanomaterials.
