Plastics possess properties that have revolutionized the manufacture of products in the 20th century and beyond. It remains critical to understand their behavior throughout their life cycle, from manufacture to use and eventually to reclamation and disposal. This volume highlights the most prominent tools in physical and chemical analysis techniques and applications. A practical reference for performing measurements, solving problems, and investigating behavioral phenomena, the editors advocate a phenomenological approach, relying on case studies and illustrations to represent possible outcomes of each technique and presenting the basic governing equations where necessary.Trace amounts of contaminants can cause baseline problems, detector noise, and possible column damage. ... Oxygen Traps Trace levels of oxygen in the carrier gas can dramatically shorten the life of a gas chromatographic column.
