Upcoming Webcasts
Quantitative Raman Analysis of Polymers and Additives
Wednesday, March 7, 2012
1:00 PM EST
During this webinar, we will discuss the use of Raman in the plastics industry, reviewing both qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques. We will cover the numerous phases during the production cycle from initial research and development to final production QA/QC. We will focus on a number of key examples, including the analysis of Br and P flame retardants, degradation tracking and end of life cycle monitoring, and how Raman can be used to determine physical properties such as strength and density.
