PSS USA Inc. will be presenting a seminar on Liquid Adsorption Chromatography in Amherst, MA on April 11th, 2017.
This course is aimed at all scientists who are looking for complementary characterization methods and want to learn more about the composition of complex polymer systems. The macroscopic properties of modern high-performance polymers cannot be assessed by the molar mass distribution alone. Many products are copolymers which, in addition to the molar mass distribution, also comprise a composition distribution. Furthermore, branching and end groups are often introduced in order to create high quality products.
Chemists are facing the challenge of selecting the appropriate characterization techniques for such complex polymer systems. With separation based only on the molecular size, it is impossible to obtain the required detailed information about the sample composition, even if advanced detection techniques are applied. Separation techniques based on composition complement and add value to the existing method tool set.
The theoretical background for different interaction chromatography methods for polymers and the achievable information based on the applied technique will be discussed. Practical information on column, solvent and detection selection is given. A compact overview of the coupling of interaction chromatography with GPC/SEC to perform 2-dimensional (2-D) chromatography rounds off the event.
