The Best of Both Worlds: Combining Advanced Polymer Chromatography with Advanced Detection for Faster and More Detailed Polymer Analysis



  8:00 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT / 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST

  September 27, 2018




High performance materials are driving innovation in the world of polymers but the increasing formulation complexity challenges researchers striving for a more detailed understanding of the structure and property of their materials.

Advanced Polymer Chromatography (APC) offers several benefits over traditional gel permeation chromatography (GPC) with a system designed specifically for the conditions and workflows of polymer analysis, improved resolutions, faster separation, greater flexibility and reduced solvent use.

The addition of multiple advanced detectors such as light scattering and viscometry, can offer additional information about polymers and oligomers when compared with conventional single-detector measurements, including absolute molecular weight, size, and structure. Combining the information-rich data from advanced multi-detection with the speed and resolution afforded by APC, it is now possible to get the best of both worlds.

This web seminar will cover:
• Technology developments that allow APC and multi-detection to be used together to deliver faster and more detailed polymer analysis
• Showcase a series of applications that leverage the combined technologies
