2017 Inverse Gas Chromatography Symposium

2017 Inverse Gas Chromatography Symposium

The 2017 iGC Symposium is a two-day event on Inverse Gas Chromatography (IGC) technique for materials characterization and is being held in Newark, New Jersey on September 25th & 26th 2017. This symposium is organized by Surface Measurement Systems Ltd.

The event is driven by the increasing demand for advanced experimental techniques for characterizing the physical and surface chemical properties of complex particulate, film, fiber and bulk solids.

The aim is to facilitate interdisciplinary interactions within the research community and will feature speakers from both industry and academia discussing their experiences in using the IGC technique.
