Materials Science and Petroleum Analysis Symposium
News Jan 28, 2015
On Tuesday, February 24, leading researchers will gather for a Materials Science and Petroleum Analysis Symposium at the Courtyard by Marriott, Oklahoma City Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This half-day event, sponsored by LECO, CDS Analytical, and the Southwest Research Institute will feature real-world approaches to unlocking the challenges in the materials science and petroleum analysis fields.
The seminar will include a half-day of presentations beginning at 8 am on the following topics:
• Analysis of Sulfur and Nonsulfur Diesel Fuels by GCxGC/MS— presented by Dr. Mark Libardoni, Staff Scientist, Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, TX
• Characterization of Complex Petroleum Materials Using High Resolution GC-TOFMS– There is a Story in Every Barrel and It’s More Than Just Carbon and Hydrogen— presented by Dr. Jeff Patrick, Director of Marketed Technologies, LECO
• The Polymer Dilemma: A Look at the Use of Programmable Pyrolysis GC/MS for the Analysis of Polymeric Samples and Biomass— presented by Stephen Wesson, Product Manager, CDS Analytical
• Comprehensive Petroleum Characterization by Thermal Desorption and Flash Pyrolysis Coupled to Gas Chromatography High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry— presented by Dr. Jeff Patrick, Director of Marketed Technologies, LECO
Registration for this symposium is free and a continental breakfast and mid-morning coffee break will be provided to attendees.
