Application Note: Microstructure Characterization of Polyolefins by Automated Cross-Fractionation Chromatography (CFC)
9 May 2011

In this application note a new integrated benchtop instrument is introduced, which enables the direct measurement of the CCD x MMD surface plot in polyolefins on the order of hours and in a fully automated way. This method is capable of describing the resin microstructure without any information loss. Applications are found in all types of polyolefins when accurate knowledge of their microstructure is required.
