Pulp Non-Fiction: Absolute Macromolecular and Nanoparticle Characterization of Lignocellulosic Materials


Presented Live: October 1, 2014

Speaker: Dr. Scott Wasko

Successful analysis of lignocellulosic biomass and biomass derivatives by conventional physico-chemical techniques can prove a formidable task. A suite of tools based on static multi-angle light scattering (MALS) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) for absolute determination of molar mass, size and conformation successfully addresses the characterization of these challenging macromolecular solutions and nanoparticle dispersions. The webinar will present a brief introduction to MALS, DLS and ancillary technologies, as well as case studies that demonstrate the application of light scattering and related experimental techniques to overcome obstacles commonly encountered with difficult-to-analyze samples such as lignins and nanocrystalline cellulose.

Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution.

Wyatt's line of multi-angle static light scattering products couple to size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS), field-flow fractionation (FFF-MALS), and stop-flow composition-gradient systems (CG-MALS). Our dynamic light scattering (DLS) products operate in traditional cuvette as well as on-line and automated, high-throughput modes. We also offer unique instruments for electrophoretic light scattering (MP-PALS), differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
