Polymeric materials are ubiquitous in our modern society covering a broad range of applications in industries such as automobiles, packaging, medical, and pharmaceutical, to name a few. This increasing complexity in applications has driven the need to produce highly complex polymeric materials. Full characterization of a sample has become a vital part of the development process. Although the usual techniques of characterization such as NMR and GPC provide a lot of information, mass spectrometry (MS) is increasingly becoming a must for polymer characterization. In this webinar I will first describe some of the advantages and limitations of single-stage (HR) MS for the determination of the absolute average molecular masses and the nature of chain ends...
- The advantages and limitations of single-stage (HR) MS for the determination of the absolute average molecular masses and the nature of chain ends.
- The use of tandem MS to help differentiate isomers and in some cases quantify mixtures of isomers.
- Application of ion mobility mass spectrometry for polymer characterization.
