Florida State University (FSU), Tallahassee, Florida, is to use LECO Corporation's equipment in combination with its own for the study and characterization of petroleum- and biomass-derived fuel and chemical samples using high-resolution mass spectrometry with GCxGC.

Florida State University (FSU), Tallahassee, Florida, is to use LECO Corporation's equipment in combination with its own for the study and characterization of petroleum- and biomass-derived fuel and chemical samples using high-resolution mass spectrometry with GCxGC. As a result, it will be able to develop a database that includes the complete listing of thousands of chemical constituents in petroleum products and by-products.

Chang “Sam” Hsu, PhD, director of the Future Fuels Institute at FSU will lead the team of researchers who will develop routine, standardized and novel characterization methods for products of fuels and chemicals, providing the chromatographic and spectral resolution needed for thorough mapping of the fuel and chemical compounds. The database should contribute significantly to future petroleum and fuels research.

“All of us at LECO are looking forward to working closely with FSU to share our knowledge and contribute to the new database,” said Jeffrey S. Patrick, PhD, of LECO’s Life Science and Chemical Analysis Centre.
