Headspace Training Courses
Dr. M. Markelov has been practicing Headspace Analysis for more than 25 years and teaching this continuously updated course for more than 15 years. While working as a head of Headspace and Trace Analysis laboratory in the Standard Oil Co. and then British Petroleum, he was teaching short headspace courses for polymer chemists and chemical engineers. This course was later expanded on the request of Hewlett Packard and Tekmar companies and given for their customers.
This two-day short course is concentrated on quantitative aspects of Headspace Analysis. Every theoretical point including the effect of temperatures, salinity, sample volume, etc. is illustrated by practical examples. Emphasis is made on the use of Matrix Independent Quantification Techniques. Different Headspace Instruments and Headspace sampling approaches are presented. Effects of various parameters of sampling like pressurization time, pressure, equilibration time and temperature, agitation techniques, etc. are demonstrated. Special attention is given to the analysis of unstable and solid matrices like food and polymers. For more information, visit www.acsanalytical.com.
This course is suitable for all levels of participants (Managers, Chemists, Technicians, etc.). The only pre-requisite to this course is some familiarity of the students with gas chromatography. Lab managers will benefit from the course by discovering many new applications and approaches to generate compositional and engineering information for their clients. Chemists will learn various quantification approaches and many ways to validate headspace results. Technicians will get a deeper understanding of headspace methodology and learn how to recognize instrumental and/or procedural problems. Chemical Engineers will find it very useful for generation of thermodynamic data on real plant streams.
