RESTEK SEMINARS & FORUMS


THURSDAY, JANUARY 18
1:00p.m.–4:00p.m. / Room 381B
#249 – Shimadzu/Restek Gas Chromatography Seminar Jeff Werner1, Jan Pijpelink2
1. Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc., 2. Restek Corporation
For more information, e-mail Jan Pijpelink.
Read abstract

Shimadzu and Restek will be presenting several topics, including two brand-new GC offerings from Shimadzu. The Nexis GC-2030, Shimadzu's premier gas chromatograph, offers a modern approach to a classic chromatographic technique. The Nexgen CAGC-2030 is an all-new GC that incorporates a range of unique, cutting-edge technologies to simplify complex separations. There will also be a presentation of a simple analysis for methanol in natural gas and LPG. Included will be a discussion/presentation on trends and updates of ASTM methods for petroleum and petrochem analysis.

RESTEK TECHNICAL PRESENTATIONS


WEDNESDAY, JANAURY 17
2:00p.m.–2:30p.m. / Room 372D
#135 – CO and CO2 Analysis — Restek's Simplified Approach
Mark Badger, Katarina Oden, Jaap de Zeeuw
Restek Corporation
For more information, e-mail Mark Badger.
Read abstract

The analysis of CO and CO2 can be challenging; the concentration and matrix can affect what detection method and column type need to be selected to get good, reliable data. In this presentation, we will discuss the options available to the chromatographer and also discuss the simplified approach that Restek suggests using a combination of Restek's ShinCarbon column with the new Restek Methanizer.

2:00p.m.–2:20p.m. / Exhibit Hall Classroom
#151 – Pro EZGC Chromatogram Modeler — Life is Short, Don’t Waste It Developing Methods
Katarina Oden, Barry Burger
Restek Corporation
For more information, e-mail Katarina Oden.
Read abstract

Current trends in gas chromatography (GC) method development and method optimization are moving towards chromatogram modeling. These techniques save enormous amounts of time and are easy to use even when trying to resolve large multiclass lists of compounds. While most modeling programs are able to provide solutions for a given separation, they lack flexibility or are not easily available. Pro EZGC chromatogram modeler—a free web-based application for method development—allows users to directly control every aspect of the chromatography including column stationary phase, column dimension, carrier gas options, and temperature program. The advantages of the Pro EZGC chromatogram modeler, including its predictive accuracy, migration of the methods between the carrier gases without the loss of resolution, and software use for reverse peak identification, will be discussed.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 18
10:40a.m.–11:00a.m. / Room 371D
#223 – New Diatomaceous Earth White Packed Column Material — DiatoSorb: Why Packed Columns Should Not Be Forgotten Just Yet or Journey of Diatoms from the Miocene Era to Today

Read abstract

Gas chromatography packed columns are to this day common in many analytical laboratories. However, without innovation in this area, users were often faced with unpredictable availability and inconsistent product performance. Restek recently introduced a new diatomaceous earth white packed column solid support material called DiatoSorb. DiatoSorb material is still based on an old diatomaceous earth material from the Miocene era; however, we applied modern processes to improve its inertness and maintain strict control over particle size distribution and density to ensure even polymer loading and maximum column efficiency. Join us on a journey from diatoms, ancient skeletons from the sea bed, to the use of this material in the manufacturing of packed columns. Learn what it takes to deliver chromatographic-grade support material and why this packed column’s extreme robustness, tremendous sample loading capacity, and tailored selectivity options offer attractive advantages that cannot be dismissed.
