Project description

temperature gel permeation chromatography (>180°C) allows the measurement of the chain length distribution (CLD) of polyolefins important for synthesis and chemical recycling assessment. Next to that a lowering of the GPC analysis temperature and switch of the columns allows the CLD measurement of e.g. poly(meth)acrylates and polystyrene up to high chain lengths.
