Polymeric materials are complex samples, as they contain various groups of additives, compounding ingredients, and fillers. An important group of additives are stabilizers. Efficient stabilization is essential especially for polypropylene, as it is sensitive to oxidation and radical attack due to the numerous tertiary carbon atoms in its structure. How long(More)
Polymers, especially copolymers, are highly complex samples and, therefore, require various setups for their thorough characterization. In this work, one- and two-dimensional chromatographic approaches were applied to characterize two homopolymers and two dissimilar copolymers prepared by rhodium-mediated carbene polymerization using ethyl and benzyl(More)
Gradient-elution liquid chromatography (GELC) is a powerful tool for the characterization of synthetic polymers. However, gradient-elution chromatograms often suffer from breakthrough phenomena. Breakthrough can be averted by using a sample solvent as weak as the mobile phase. However, this approach is only applicable to polymers for which a sufficiently(More)
Emissions from polypropylene (PP) may cause undesired smell, be harmful, or lead to so-called fogging which prohibits its use for car interiors. Thus, qualitative as well as quantitative emission studies are necessary. Thermodesorption (TDS) and static headspace (sHS) with subsequent GC-MS analysis are two powerful tools for analyzing the emission behavior(More)
Gradient-elution LC × LC is a valuable technique for the characterization of complex biological samples as well as for synthetic polymers. Breakthrough and viscous fingering may yield misleading information on the sample characteristics or deteriorate separation. In LC × SEC another phenomenon may jeopardize the separation. If the analytes adsorb on the SEC(More)
