While Polylactide (PLA) is becoming more competitive as a substitute for many polymers in a variety of applications, there is a greater need for more complete characterization in molecular weight, molecular structure, processability and end-use performance. Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) also known as Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC), Flow Injection Polymer Analysis (FIPA), Dilute Solution Viscosity (DSV), and Rheometry are very popular analytical techniques providing such vital and complementary information throughout a polymer life cycle, i.e., from concepts to commercial applications. This webinar will discuss how these techniques are being used in the measurement of molecular weight distribution, branching, viscosity and visco-elastic properties of PLA materials.
