Today, analytical pyrolysis encompasses much more than simple flash pyrolysis of polymeric materials. Virtually any material (gas, liquid or solid) can be characterized using an array of techniques, which are designed into a modern day, Multi-Mode Pyrolysis System. With this, our webinar topic is all about simplifying pyrolysis.
Using the Frontier Multi-Mode Pyrolyzer and its Micro-Furnace design technology, volatiles, additives, oligomers, as well as polar, 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, since 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 Multi-Mode Pyrolyzer also allows multiple analytical techniques to be performed on a sample, such as Evolved Gas Analysis, Thermal Desorption, flash Pyrolysis, Heart-Cutting, Double-Shot, and Reactive Pyrolysis. Whether you are a current user, are new to pyrolysis, or haven’t looked at the technique in a while, this webinar is a great introduction to the benefits of this powerful instrument.
Key webinar take-aways:
- Learn what the Pyrolysis-GC/MS (Py-GC-MS) technique involves, and how its different modes of operations (such as Evolved Gas Analysis, Thermal Desorption, flash Pyrolysis, and Double-Shot) can be applied for material characterization in various industries.
- Discover how Py-GC-MS can be applied to quality control, deformulation, contamination, unknown identification, and failure analyses while increasing laboratory efficiency by eliminating sample pretreatment and the “traditional” solvent-based techniques.
- Learn about different pyrolyzers in the market and what sets the Multi-Mode Micro-Furnace design Pyrolyzer apart from others.
