OVERVIEW

Many food and industrial products that we commonly use such as mayonnaise, latex paint and ice cream will not mix without the use of emulsion additives. This presentation will specifically focus on the rapid determination of additives used in asphalt emulsions using high resolution accurate mass Orbitrap technology with a simple, direct sample introduction method. High resolution accurate mass spectrometry combined with sample introduction via an atmospheric solids analysis probe (ASAP) enables quick fingerprinting of sample components within stable asphalt emulsions or the aqueous layer of purposely broken emulsions, despite the complex nature of the samples. A general discussion of emulsions systems will also be presented along with emulsion breaking methods to separate the aqueous and asphalt layers within an asphalt emulsion.

KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

- The application of high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) mass spectrometry for differential analysis of complex samples

- Simple, direct sample introduction methods

- Sample pre-treatment techniques for emulsions

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • • QC chemists, industrial chemists, formulation chemists, food scientists
  •  
  • • Anyone wanting to learn more about fingerprinting and differential analysis of complex samples
