The new webpages are structured according to the three main steps of the polymer production process, i.e., 'Quality control of feedstock', 'Reaction monitoring', and 'Quality control of polymer and plastic products'.
While professionals will find what they would expect on the new webpages (how to determine crucial quality parameters such as additives, copolymer levels, water content, halogens, residual monomers, impurities, etc.), the latest Metrohm online resource takes a look beyond this scope providing dedicated solutions for analyzing bioplastics and conductive polymers, the latter being increasingly used in polymer solar cells, polymer-based supercapacitors, electrodes, and other devices.
'Polymer and plastics analysis' is a valuable resource to consult for professionals in charge of production and quality control. Moreover, research chemists will benefit from numerous 'fringe' applications, e.g., on the analysis of conductive polymers and biopolymers.
