Pyrolysis workshop at GERSTEL in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany


Workshop: Pyrolysis GC/MS
Pyrolysis in GC/MS: Technology, application, method development, and interpretation




Instruments that are available nowadays permit the flexible and efficiently automated pyrolysis of solid and liquid samples at temperatures up to 1000°C. This can if necessary be preceeded by thermal desorption, in order to eliminate and even analyse interfering material emissions before the actual pyrolysis step.


This one-day workshop communicates valuable and necessary basic information as well as specific practical know-how based on the analysis of polymer samples using the GERSTEL PYRO. The different options and conditions are explained on the basis of thermal decomposition of the polymers tested in the absence of air. The practical session is followed by an interpretation of the results. A demonstration is also given of how thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) can be simulated with the GERSTEL PYRO.

Who should attend

All interested GC/MS users, particularly those involved in polymer or lacquer manufacturing, biopolymers and forensics. Please contact us if you would like to have your own samples processed.
