Join us for the first in a three part series about PY-GC/MS. In this webinar presented by Shimadzu and Frontier Labs, we will discuss the different application/market spaces the pyrolyzer can used in. While many think of the pyrolyzer as a technique used for plastics identification, there are many other application spaces. These units can be for characterization, composition, and identification in everything from plastics and polymers to foods and consumer products and so much more.
During this short webinar, we will look at why pyrolysis is important and the different areas of use, discuss method mapping using a pyrolyzer and finally how it can be used for day to day material characterization.
Join us to learn about this versatile sample introduction technique used with GC and GC/MS.
