One of the most popular and useful techniques for polyolefins (PE,PP) characterization is Gel Permeation Chromatography or Size Exclusion Chromatography (GPC/SEC). Traditionally it has been considered quite an involved technique plagued with many practical difficulties, since it must be carried out at elevated temperatures, handling chlorinated solvents.
Recently, instrumentation specifically designed for safe and reliable operation under those hard conditions has become available and, for the first time, full automation of all the analytical workflow, from sample preparation to data evaluation is possible.
Engineering advances implemented in most modern high temperature GPC/ SEC instruments will be described, showing how updated technology can help to improving laboratory productivity, raising the safety standards and minimizing the downtime possibilities.
In this seminar, the great value of infrared detection as concentration detector for characterization of polyolefins and the synergy as online simultaneous detection of chemical composition will be demonstrated. Real life examples of several GPC/SEC methods with different detection schemes are discussed, from routine to more challenging samples.
This webcast might be very valuable for those scientists who are considering the acquisition of new gel permeation chromatograph equipment for polyolefin application and want to learn more about the recent advances in instrumentation engineering as well as most appropriate detection technologies.
