GPC/SEC is the go-to technique for determining the molecular weight distribution of synthetic and natural polymers and for comparing batch to batch quality. Specific criteria should be considered when developing or optimizing your method to ensure the success of the application:

  • Why determining molecular weight is important

  • Key parameters for solvent and column selection

  • Column type options, their features, and benefits

  • Importance of polymer standards selection and calibrating

  • Modes of Detection and expanding the information for your polymer

Practical steps, helpful product information, and application examples will be provided to assist you with selecting the best GPC/SEC solution for your polymer sample.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How to select the best GPC/SEC solution for your polymer sample
  • Learn practical tips and tricks to optimize your GPC/SEC workflow
  • Best practices for polymer analysis

Who Should Attend:

  • Chromatographers interested in polymer analysis
