Separation Science, in collaboration with GERSTEL, Inc, offers an on-demand webinar introducing new perspectives and technology in pyrolysis GC-MS for forensic and polymer analysis and describing how changes in pyrolyzer design lead to improved data.
Duration: Approximately 50 minutes
(GERSTEL International Product Manager, Pyrolysis and Thermal Desorption)
Kurt Thaxton got his first taste of polymer analysis straight from graduate school, pyrolyzing paper and coating samples at International Paper. Having determined most pyrolysis instruments were less than optimal, he decided there must be a better way. Seven years later Kurt moved on and became involved in developing new instrumentation, as a mass spectrometry specialist, business director, and now as International Product Manager for Pyrolysis and Thermal Desorption at GERSTEL. His main focus is in instrument design and development of standard methods at SAE, ASTM and ISO.
