Speakers: Dr. Andy Fornadel, Mr. Ryo Takechi
Moderators: Tom Lynch CChem FRSC

Gas chromatography with sulfur chemiluminescence detection (GC-SCD) is one of the most power analytical techniques for speciating and quantifying sulfur compounds in gases and volatile liquids. This technique is particularly useful for hydrocarbon sample matrices in which the presence of sulfur may present processing problems or needs to be known for regulatory purposes. Despite the utility of GC-SCD, the technique is known for its challenges, such as complications with sensitivity, selectivity for sulfur, and long-term stability.

In this webinar, we will discuss the fundamentals of GC-SCD as well as common challenges, explore the unique design of Shimadzu’s new SCD and how it overcomes these challenges, and present data for this system’s applicability to ASTM D5504, D5623, D7011, as well as quantification of sulfur compounds in ethylene and propylene.
