Characterizing structure and chemistry of functional nanomaterials
Where: Dallas Convention Center
Room: Dallas Convention Center, Room D220
When: Monday, March 17, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
The development of technologies for efficient resource usage, energy conversion, transportation, or environmental protection, etc., relies heavily on advances in developing new and improved nanostructures and nanomaterials. Characterization on length scales down to sub-nanometer, and focusing on structural evolution with the link to the nanomaterial’s ‘performance’, play a crucial role for obtaining detailed knowledge about the relationship between structure, unique property and function in these systems of reduced dimensions. In this workshop we will profile use cases in catalyst development and in polymer engineering, and take you through different electron microscopy characterization methods and routines that will enable you to get more insights into structure and chemistry of your functional nanomaterials.

9:30am - 10:30am and 11:00am - 12:00pm. The development of chromatographic methods requires consideration of many variables. Often the type of assay, sample, and success criteria for a method are determined prior to the start of the development process, but analysts often wonder where to begin. We will present a systematic approach for developing methods which incorporates commonly adjusted parameters and how they impact chromatographic separation. We will discuss how the ACQUITY UPLC H-Class Platform with both optical detection and mass detection can streamline the development process by reduceing, and in many cases eliminate, the need for injecting standards for tracking and identifying components. Finally, we will discuss how Empower simplifies the decision making process throughout the development process using custom calculations and custom reporting.
