Workshop: Pyrolysis GC/MS

Hot stuff!

Pyrolysis GC/MS: Technology, application, method development and interpretation

Modern pyrolysis instruments perform flexible and efficiently automated pyrolysis of solid and liquid samples at temperatures up to 1,000 °C. If necessary, thermal desorption can be performed prior to pyrolysis to eliminate and even determine interfering volatile material emissions beforehand.


In this one-day Workshop, you will get valuable basic information as well as specific practical know-how based on the analysis of plastic samples using the GERSTEL PYRO. The different options and conditions are explained on the basis of thermal decomposition in the absence of air of the polymers tested. The practical session is followed by interpretation of the results. A demonstration is also given of how thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) can be simulated using the GERSTEL PYRO.

Who should attend

All interested GC users, particularly those involved in polymer or lacquer manufacturing, biopolymers and forensics. Please contact us if you would like to have your own samples processed.
