About this book

Introduction

This book introduces the reader to thermal field-flow fractionation and discusses its advantages over the fundamental problems associated with traditional column-based analytical techniques commonly used to characterize polymers and macromolecules. The authors discuss the theoretical background, equipment, experimental procedures as well as the recent advances and applications of thermal field-flow fractionation. Complete with several practical examples and troubleshooting guidelines, the book is written for beginners and experienced separation scientists alike and will enable its readers to optimize their experimental conditions for their specific separation needs and problems.

About the authors

Guilaume Greyling is a Postdoc Fellow at University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. Previously he worked as Research Scientist for iThemba LABS and holds a PhD in Chemistry and Polymer Science from University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Harald Pasch holds the SASOL Chair of Analytical Polymer Science at the Department of Chemistry and Polymer Science, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. He has great experience in analytical polymer science and polymer separation and fractionation techniques. His research is focused on the development of multidimensional analytical techniques for complex polymers, in particular efficient multi-dimensional coupling of separation methods and hyphenation of separation methods through complementary analytical methodology. Harald Pasch is one of the series editors of the series Springer Laboratory: Manuals in Polymer Science

Reviews

“Thermal field-flow fractionation of polymers is an important contribution to the series of textbooks in field-flow fractionation and polymer science. … This book will be a great support for students in physical and analytical chemistry, for material and macromolecular chemistry researchers, as well as for technicians working in analytical laboratories.” (Albena Lederer, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 411, 2019)
