Webinar Micro Plastic Quantification by PY-GC/MS
Analytical methods for analyzing microplastics is an increasingly popular topic in the environmental industry. During this webinar, the presenters will explore the quantitative analysis of microplastics in environmental samples. They will provide background information on the pyrolysis gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (PY-GC/MS) technique and the complexities of analyzing microplastics.
Dr. Barbara Scholz-Boettcher of the Institute for Chemistry & Biology of the Marine Environment University Oldenburg, will be talking about her work.
Rojin Belganeh (Frontier Lab USA) will introduce Frontier Laboratories technologies and analytical methods in the beginning.
Watch the webinar and learn about the relevance of microplastics as a pollutant, the analytical challenges it poses, how the PY-GC/MS can quantify microplastics for the most abundant polymers, selection of identifier ions and external calibration.
