Event Overview: We will showcase the use of gas chromatography-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC-TOFMS) and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-TOFMS (MALDI-TOFMS) techniques for the analysis of polymeric materials. These methods will be illustrated with the composition analysis of UV-curable resins, tracking analysis of epoxy curing, and other examples. In the section of compositional analysis of UV-curable resin, the importance of separation for MS analysis will be explained. By using GPC fractionation, the structures of the monomer, photo-initiator, reactive oligomer, and polymer, which were difficult to identify by bulk analysis, were clearly identified. In the section of tracking analysis of epoxy curing, the effectivity of a KMD plot will be presented. Generally, a KMD plot is used for the analysis of the polymer terminal group. In this example, we undertook to reveal the mechanism of epoxy curing. As a result, it was possible to visualize reaction behavior at the initial stage of the reaction.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Methods for analysis of polymeric materials: GC-TOFMS and MALDI-TOFMS
  • How these techniques can be used in reverse engineering of a UV resin
  • Latest approaches to mass analysis of a surfactant mixture and tracking of epoxy curing
