Analytical and Engineering Advances in High Temperature GPC/SEC for Polyolefin Characterization
Thursday, September 6, 2012
9:00 AM EDT; 15:00 CET
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.
Editors' Series: Advances in Nanoscale LC-MS Techniques
Thursday, September 6, 2012
2:00 PM EDT
This talk will address some of the key hurdles to the routine use of nanoLC-MS in the analytical laboratory. Background on the preparation of different nanocolumn stationary phases, plumbing, and connectivity and the variety of commercially available column formats and interfaces will be discussed. In addition, the challenges associated with routine nanoscale LC-MS will be highlighted as well as suggested solutions. The talk will conclude with several applications using nanoscale LC-MS for the analysis of small molecules, proteomics, and oligonucleotides.
