Polymer specialists from Malvern Instruments will deliver a short course on polymer solution characterization at this year’s Interplas (The British Plastics Show), which takes place in Birmingham from 30 September to 3 October 2014.

The short course will focus on the importance of differentiating between performance differences that result from changes in polymer structure and those that result from changes in molecular weight. It will describe how to use analytical techniques such as light scattering and gel permeation chromatography (GPC/SEC) to determine the molecular weight and distribution, intrinsic viscosity, molecular size and branching measurements of polymers and polysaccharides. It will then offer practical guidance on employing this enhanced understanding to guide polymer development and quality control.

'We expect this short course to be of interest to anyone working with polymer solutions, including polymer researchers, scientists, lab managers and formulators,' said Paul Clarke, industrial portfolio manager at Malvern and one of the course tutors. 'It will also benefit those already working with light scattering and GPC/SEC who may be looking to achieve more useful data from each analysis.'
