Analysis of Petroleum and Petrochemicals Using GC-ICP-MS

Blake McElmurry (Consolidated Sciences)

Thursday, February 17, 2022 | 2PM EST | Online

Summary

The hyphenated technique of GC-ICP-MS has always been a powerful analytical tool due to its attributes of sensitivity and specificity. Regardless of the cost of an ICP-MS as a detector it is fast becoming more commonly used by the petroleum, petrochemical, and specialty gas industries by providing information that was previously difficult, unreliable, or too expensive to obtain. This presentation will review some of the common applications as well as a few uncommon ones. These analyses have become very important for everything from improvement in polymer manufacturing to novel medical therapeutics. Discussions will focus on trace analyses of ‘bad actors’ in high purity products as well as a few unusual applications.

About the Author

Dr. Blake McElmurry is a Senior Scientist with CONSCI and has been using ICP-MS and GC-ICP-MS for analysis of gases for eight years. Blake obtained a Doctorate in chemistry from Texas A&M University in 2008 and joined CONSCI in 2014. CONSCI also applicates and configures instrumentation for analysis using GC, GC-MS, GC-ICP-MS and FTIR as well as using those instruments as a contract laboratory.

About Consolidated Sciences

Consolidated Sciences (CONSCI) is a leading provider of independent specialty gas testing services. Although we specialize in not-so-routine analyses, we have almost three decades of experience in everything from advanced R&D projects to routine quality tests. At CONSCI, we like to say ‘We do the hard stuff!’ because some of our best work has been done when everyone else said it couldn’t be done.
