Dr. Daniel Burnett
Vice President
Surface Measurement Systems NA

Join the Vice President of Surface Measurement Systems NA, Dr. Daniel Burnett, as he explores innovative techniques for the detailed characterization of polymers.

This session will explore well-established vapor sorption techniques of Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (IGC).  With a focus on applications, the webinar will delve into the physicochemical characterization capabilities offered by the DVS and IGC, specific to polymers and films.

In particular to IGC, practical examples and case studies will be given that cover a wide range of relevant problems, including surface energetics, wetting behavior, composite adhesion/cohesion phenomena, solubility parameters, and glass transitions. 

Related to DVS, examples and case studies will be reviewed that provide insight into moisture sorption properties, drying kinetics, vapor-induced phase changes, and vapor diffusion/permeability studies. Also, the hypenization of the DVS with video microscopy and Raman spectroscopy will be discussed including examples on relevant materials.
