SYMYX DISCOVERY TOOLS SYNTHESIS
Symyx Rapid GPCTM is a high throughput method for characterizing polymer molecular weight and molecular weight distribution. This system includes a sample preparation system that is used to dilute the polymer samples and inject the samples into the GPC system. The sample preparation system has heated liquid dispensing pipettes for handling viscous polymers. The GPC system uses high-speed columns and an evaporative light scattering detector. Samples can be analyzed in as little as 10 minutes.
The system can identify the molecular weight of a compound based on its retention volume and has a molecular weight range from 162 – 15,000,000 depending on columns and standards used.
