Markes International to present advances in petrochemical analysis at Gulf Coast Conference
Friday, 11 October 2013 at 11:58:AM
Markes International will highlight exciting advances being made in GC–TOF MS technology for environmental forensic applications at the 109th annual Gulf Coast Conference (GCC) in Galveston, Texas, on 15–16 October 2013.
Markes will be presenting two oral papers on advanced techniques for characterisation of petrochemicals:
- Extended dimensionality in GC×GC–TOF MS via novel selective ionisation for improved characterisation of crude oils
- A sticky problem for seabirds: identification of a polyisobutylene spill
In addition, Markes will present two posters of general relevance for the analysis of complex mixtures of petrochemicals:
- Enhanced GC×GC–TOF MS quantitation of complex mixtures by novel real-time data-mining
- Hydraulic fracturing – monitoring environmental impacts and worker exposure
In a separate poster, Markes International will also be offering a preview of a revolutionary variable-energy ion source for GC–MS. Developed for the ALMSCO BenchTOF time-of-flight mass spectrometer, this exciting technology will formally launch to market in January 2014.
Markes welcomes visitors to Booth #225 to find out more about any of these applications, or for more information on its thermal desorption and time-of-flight mass spectrometry products, accessories, consumables and software.
