Hyphenation is the combination of different instruments to gain analytical insights which would previously not be observed by either instrument on their own. An example of this is a Gas chromatograph (GC) in combination with a mass spectrometer (MS) or a Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA) in combination with a FT-IR or GC/MS. With that being said, TGA has long been used to analyze polymers and other materials to determine their breakdown properties. When the capability of FTIR and GCMS is combined with a TGA, it gives the chemist much more information about the material and its makeup. This webinar will discuss the basics of the technology along with some applications of where this kind of technique would be an advantage to use.
