Tips & Tricks GPC/SEC: Mobile Phase Considerations
April 8, 2014

There are many sources of advice on how to select the most appropriate stationary phase for sample analysis, but the mobile phase is not often discussed. This article provides tips for selecting the most appropriate mobile phase for your analysis.

Tips & Tricks GPC/SEC: How to Install GPC/SEC Columns
February 3, 2014

For proper column installation it is important to be familiar with column characteristics such as solvent compatibility, maximum flow rate, and maximum operating temperature.

Tips & Tricks GPC/SEC: Select the Right Columns for Your Molar Mass Range
December 11, 2013

Shoulders in gel permeation/size-exclusion chromatograms (GPC/SEC) can be a result of sample characteristics or down to the wrong choice of columns or column combinations. Proper selection helps to measure true results.

Tips & Tricks: Evaporative Light Scattering Detection in GPC/SEC
October 3, 2013

This article presents applications of ELSD in GPC/SEC. It discusses both the advantages and disadvantages as well as the practical considerations for use in GPC/SEC.

Tips & Tricks GPC/SEC:An Alternative to Calibration With Narrow Standards
August 8, 2013

Integral calibration with a broad standard is a fast, cost-effective, and easy-to-use calibration technique for quality control. This article explains more.

PSS Polymer EU - 2D Analysis for Thermoplastic Elastomers
June 12, 2013

The online combination of gradient HPLC and GPC/SEC increases peak capacity of the separations and allows to evaluate peaks which cannot be separated by either method alone.The 2D approach is the only way to determine two property distributions independently and unambiguously. A better understanding of the polymerization process and of structure - property relationships can be obtained that might help to tune products for specific applications
