North American iGC Symposium 2021 – First Virtual Edition a Big Hit with the Global Sorption Community
Following a challenging year in 2020, the iGC Symposium returned in 2021 with its first online edition, bringing the sorption community together to learn, share insights, and reconnect.
Taking place 17 & 18 February 2021, the Symposium offered attendees a vast array of scientific presentations, posters, and panel debates exploring the latest applications for Inverse Gas Chromatography. Topics & applications discussed in the agenda included Additives, Adhesion/Cohesion, Cellulose, Chemicals, Composites, Fibers, Food, Glass, Metals, Minerals, Nanomaterials, Pharmaceuticals, Polymers, Powders/particles, Soil, and more.
With 191 attendees joining the US-based event from 22 countries across the globe, some from as far away as Israel, India, Japan, and Malaysia to name a few, the Symposium proved to be a truly international gathering place for researchers, scientists, and students involved in surface science. The event offered a range of networking opportunities, from direct messaging to video networking sessions. Participating companies and institutions came from a range of industries and fields of research, including pharmaceuticals, automotive, food, energy, oil & gas, chemicals, cosmetics, defense, and more, as well as a variety of academic institutions, contract laboratories, and government agencies.
