In a previous installment, we explored how the shape and packing of a gas chromatographic (GC) inlet liner affects the precision and accuracy of split injections. This webinar is the second of a two-part series and will focus, instead, on liner performance in splitless injections.Narrated by Scott Grossman, Innovations Chemist. Length: 33 minutes
There are many liners to choose from, but do they all perform the same for a given split analysis? This webinar explores how the shape and packing of a gas chromatographic inlet liner affects the precision and accuracy of split injections.Narrated by Scott Grossman, Innovations Chemist. Length: 34.5 minutes
1,3-butadiene is a C4 hydrocarbon primarily used for synthetic rubber production. Accurate analysis of impurities in 1,3-butadiene is critical because even trace levels of compounds like methyl acetylene and propadiene can destroy expensive polymerization catalysts. Alumina PLOT columns are commonly used for this analysis, but performance is highly dependent on deactivation. Learn what makes Restek Alumina BOND/MAPD PLOT columns ideal for 1,3-butadiene analysis, how to use them in a valve configured GC, and how they compare to other deactivations.Narrated by Jaap de Zeeuw. Length: 37 minutes
In their comparison of GC and GCxGC, Blumberg et al stated, “the peak capacity of currently practiced GC×GC does not generally exceed the peak capacity attainable from 1D-GC with the same analysis time…”. Seemingly, Blumberg’s main point was that the typical first dimension column in GCxGC is operated suboptimally. We lengthened this column to “naturally” increase peak widths and present here what we believe is the first “true peak capacity increase” for GCxGC.Narrated by Jack Cochran, Director of New Business and Technology. Length: 55 minutes
Chromatographic selectivity has taken a backseat to efficiency and MS, however, there are situations today that argue for development of highly selective GC stationary phases, even when MS is used.
This webinar discusses the development and characterization of GC stationary phases which exhibit novel selectivity, and demonstrate how this can provide determinations not possible using routine phases, even if employing MS.Narrated by Jack Cochran, Director of New Business and Technology. Length: 27 minutes
Accurate quantification of sulfur compounds in LNG is challenging, due to the adsorption of analytes in sample collection devices. This webinar demonstrates how using Sulfinert® treated sample cylinders prevents loss and improves accuracy compared to untreated stainless steel cylinders.Narrated by Silvia Martinez, Air Innovations Chemist. Length: 22 minutes
This brief webinar introduces some common sources of poor liquid chromatography, and presents easy ways to improve chromatographic performance. Money-saving techniques for improving analytical and guard column lifetime will also be discussed. Less than 17 minutes could help you get the most from your HPLC column and chromatographic system!Narrated by Amanda Rigdon. Length: 16.5 minutes
There are many simulated distillation (SimDist) analyses described in the ASTM methods. The most commonly used are ASTM D2887 and ASTM D7213 for light and mid-distillates (gasoline, diesel), as well as the high temperature simulated distillation of crude oils according to ASTM D6352. This 25-minute live webinar provides technical information on the various SimDist methods and includes discussion of column choices, injection techniques, and pain points such as column bleed.Narrated by Jaap de Zeeuw. Length: 34.5 minutes
This presentation provides an overview of detailed hydrocarbon analysis (DHA) according to ASTM Method D6730, discusses column specifications and critical separations, and explains why not every column is suitable for this analysis.Narrated by Jaap de Zeeuw, International Specialist GC Consumable Products. Length: 18 minutes
Analysis of veterinary drug residues in milk using a QuEChERS approach and Biphenyl column is discussed. Better retention is achieved, compared to C18 or phenyl phases, improving separation of analytes and matrix components.Narrated by Julie Kowalski, Foods, Flavors & Fragrances Applications Chemist. Length: 24 minutes
An overview of the principles of LC/MS, focusing on the impact of column selection. Attendees will learn how to optimize separations using stationary phase selectivity and column dimensions.Narrated by Becky Wittrig, Global HPLC Specialist, & Amanda Rigdon, Clinical/Forensics Applications Chemist. Length: 62 minutes
Learn how new GC column technology results in higher peak responses, lower detection limits, and more predictable retention times. Explores the effect of column technology on peak shape and chromatographic performance.Narrated by Chris English, Applications Manager. Length: 18 minutes
Guidelines have recently been established for levels of potential genotoxic impurities (PGIs) in pharmaceutical APIs. This webinar outlines LC/MS and GC/MS methods developed in collaboration with Merck & Co.Narrated by Amanda Rigdon, Innovations Chemist. Length: 17 minutes
Hybrid Midpolarity Siloxane Stationary Phase Polymers for Next Generation, High-Performance Capillary GC Columns
Recent application of new crossbonding and deactivation chemistries to a 35% phenyl equivalent hybrid siloxane phase results in advances in column efficiency, inertness for polar compounds, and thermal stability.Narrated by Chris English, Innovations Manager. Length: 20 minutes
