Aqueous Size Exclusion Chromatography of Water-Soluble Polymers: Why Column Choice and Method Conditions Matter
Agilent Technologies: Aqueous Size Exclusion Chromatography of Water-Soluble Polymers: Why Column Choice and Method Conditions Matter
Aqueous size exclusion chromatography (SEC) of polymers can be quite complex. Depending on the type of sample, your choice of column chemistry and mobile phase conditions will be important for maintaining the size-exclusion mechanism.
In this webinar, we will highlight available column chemistry options for neutral, anionic, and cationic polymers. Advice for selecting your SEC column and polymer standards will be given with a particular focus on molecular weight range and optimizing for resolution. The impact of pH and buffer concentrations when preparing aqueous mobile phases is significant, and will also be discussed. Application examples will be featured.
