Attend our workshop to discover solutions including FTIR, IR Microscopy, Raman, Rheology and Extrusion technologies as well as sample preparation, chromatography, mass spectrometry, elemental analysis and laboratory data management.
Steve McQueen This workshop will highlight the advantages of using Infrared and Raman microscopy techniques in the analysis of micro-scale materials. The presentation will illustrate various applications of both microscopy techniques and the advantages of each based on the type of materials being analyzed.
Cam MacIsaac This workshop will cover the theory behind several spectroscopic techniques including Fourier transform Infrared technique. It will review what happens to molecules when they are exposed to the infrared. It will cover an overview of how spectra are recorded using the FT technique. It will also cover the theory behind several common IR sampling techniques and explore their usages.
Cam MacIsaac /Dr. Robert Jones This workshop will cover Omnic software, the popular platform for running Thermo Fisher FTIR, FT-NIR, and Raman spectrometers. A live software demonstration will be given to highlight features of Omnic, which will include collection of data from a working spectrometer. A live demonstration of TQ software will be given illustrating FTIR, FT-NIR and Raman quantitative and qualitative methods. Suggestions will be given on how to diagnose chemometric methods to ensure they accurately predict. Some pitfalls will be covered to avoid improperly modeled methods. In addition, an overview of Macros/Basic automated workflow software will be given. This software is designed to build pre-program quantitative predictions. The Macros language can also automate many other software functions, like basic kinetic routines.
Dr. Robert Jones This talk will give an overview of FT-IR interpretation by focusing on several common functional groups. It will cover major hydrocarbons including aliphatic, olefinic and aromatic groups. Additionally, it will discuss carbonyl groups like esters, ketones and carboxylic acids. It is designed to give an understanding of commonly seen infrared bands and to help better understand infrared data.
Steve Watts Small, lab-scale extrusion systems provide unique opportunities for material characterization and process development. Formulation studies and a comprehensive understanding of a material’s processability can be realized and rapid process development for direct scale-up leads to improved efficiency due to increased time-to-results and reduced cost of materials. In addition, the creation of sample products, whether injection molded specimens (discs or bars) or final product simulation (sheets, blown film), provides additional analytical opportunities and insight to the material’s properties. Depending on the requirements, various types of systems can be used including micro-compounders, bench-top extruders and torque rheometers, and these will be discussed here.

Steve Watts The petrochemical and polymer industries utilize rheology to better understand their materials and how they behave under controlled conditions. This allows users to gain insight into their processes and solve real-world challenges. Relevant applications would include the determination of physical properties (viscoelasticity, molecular weights and distribution, transition temperatures, extensional viscosity), processability (degradation, curing) and flow under extreme conditions (high pressure and temperatures). Here, we will discuss several methods that employ rotational rheometers, extensional rheometers and torque rheometers to address these challenges.
