Duration: 69 minutes
During this webinar, we’ll discuss thermal extraction-GC/MS technique, pyrolysis and the method map for material characterization, and its use in analyzing hydrocarbons in shale rocks. More scientists are turning to thermal extraction by way of Frontier Multi-Shot pyrolyzers to solve the analytical challenges of REP testing, while providing more detailed information.
Simplified sample preparation
Improved accuracy of the organic determination
Detailed information on precisely what chemical species are present
Ability to perform rock evaluation pyrolysis and biochemical speciation on the same system
