The 7th International IGC Symposium on 19 June 2018:

The next Generation of Surface Characterisation by Inverse Gas Chromatography

This 7th symposium showcased experts who all use dynamic sorption methods also known as  inverse gas and liquid chromatography (IGC, ILC).  In IGC the adsorption behavior of 15-25 different probe compounds is used like AFM tips to characterise the properties.

The program presented the latest, most up-to-date knowledge and experience on surface characterisation of powders and fibres.  Good practices as well as critical aspects and supporting techniques were outlined (see abstracts). And structured discussions intensified the exchange of experiences – like in the successful 2017 symposium.

The one-day program was compact and ideally suited for industry representatives from R&D, product development and analytical departments as well as researchers from institutes.


The 6th IGC Symposium in 2017

continued the successful exchange of industry and academia on different aspects of „inverse chromatography“.

Besides of the experts who presented their best practices in the field of IGC and ILC we discussed the needs and questions of the participants in small work groups.
