Project Q1 • Multi-Dimensional SEC-Correlation-Spectroscopy

The correlated determination of the three main characteristics of a polymer (size, chemical composition, and functional groups) in one experiment are not yet realized for high molecular weight polymers or for low degrees of functionalization. Therefore, a novel in-situ characterization method is required to prove the sequence control capabilities in the SFB 1176. The coupling of size exclusion chromatography (SEC) with infrared spectroscopy (IR) or low field 1H-NMR allows for the correlated determination of molecular weight and chemical composition while functional groups will be detected quantitatively via the newest quantum cascade lasers in the IR-regime.
