Training in the GPC technique for laboratories

Your teams need training in the GPC technique...

What is the principle of Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC)?

First of all, Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) is also called Steric Exclusion Chromatography (SEC). Its principle is to determine the average molecular weight and the distribution of molar masses, in other words it is a characterization technique.

The sample is dissolved and injected via a mobile phase through a column with a controlled porosity packing (called stationary phase).

Secondly, GPC/SEC analysis is an analytical technique for characterizing a wide variety of polymers or other macromolecules in a mixture.

Indeed, this technique is solicited in many contexts:

  • quality control,
  • process optimization (polymerization kinetics for example)
  • expertise (search for pollution, contamination, …).

Why train in GPC?

The applications of the GPC analysis are multiple…you will be able to : 

  • Controlling average molecular weights

  • Optimize manufacturing processes to validate synthesis, application or cross-linking conditions

  • Deforming polymers

  • Characterize structures

  • Study failures on thermoplastic parts

  • ...
