Characterization of Volatiles in Post-consumer Recycled Plastics Using
TD-GC×GC–TOF MS

Separation Science, in collaboration with SepSolve Analytical offers an upcoming webinar that will demonstrate how thermal desorption (TD) coupled with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TD-GC×GC-TOF MS) can provide fast and confident characterisation of complex odour profiles from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.

Waste plastic from food packaging is currently a topic of great concern, increasing demand for more sustainable, recycled materials. However, post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics can require significant processing and analyses to identify volatile contaminants that may negatively impact food quality or safety.

This webinar will show how thermal desorption (TD) coupled with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TD-GC×GC-TOF MS) can provide fast and confident characterisation of complex odour profiles from PCRs.

By attending this webinar you will ...

  • Learn how cutting-edge analytical techniques can reveal hidden information from complex samples
  • Understand the hardware and software requirements for routine GC×GC
  • Hear how GC×GC-TOF MS can confidently identify potential odour taints.

Who should attend?

  • GC users who want to enhance their ability to analyse complex VOC profiles
  • Analysts who want to find out more about GC×GC
  • Food and aroma analysts who want to understand more about odours from packaging and post-consumer recycle.
