Introducing a new web resource for polymer analysis: Structural Analysis of Polymers
Polymer materials have almost unlimited use in the world of consumer products and industries. Being able to identify their structures in experimentation, and monitor production and lifespan is an essential discipline in material science and manufacturing. We offer several spectroscopic and spectrometric techniques for polymer characterization such as infrared, Raman, GC/MS, and XRF.
One technique that stands out in its ability to determine the physical properties of polymer materials is X-ray Diffraction (XRD). This easy to use and non-destructive technique enables material engineers and quality technicians to understand three important material characteristics:
- Polymer type and polymorphism
- Degree of crystallinity
- Crystallite size
To help researchers, polymer engineers, and quality control specialists meet the demand for stronger, lighter and more flexible materials, we created a web page devoted to the structural analysis of polymers. This resource includes product information, application notes, webinar recordings, and videos that show X-ray diffraction’s utility in the polymers industry.
