ACQUITY® Advanced Polymer Chromatography® (APCT) -
A Novel, Practical Approach to SEC-GPC Analysis
Dr. Tobias Langrock, LC/MS Application Specialist, Waters Corporation

Size exclusion chromatography (SEC/GPC) is used for the characterization of polymeric material, specifically their molecular weight distribution. Resolution of polymeric species requires long column lengths and banked column configurations, resulting in lengthy analytical test cycle times and associated consumption of costly and often hazardous solvents. Additionally, many test sets suffer from minimal replicate data points due to long analysis time resulting data with limited statistical weighting.
Taking advantage of the advances in chromatographic separations instrumentation and innovative robust column technology, the Waters ACQUITY APCT System allows for improved resolution of polymer distributions with significantly shorter chromatographic run times and associated reduction in total analysis cycle time. Built on a holistic approach for instrument and column design, an unprecedented control of separation conditions required for polymer size based separation is achieved. The resulting ACQUITY APC system enables precise data generation for polymer characterization. Additionally, richer data sets with replicate analysis are easily obtained within minutes and not hours.
