Comprehensive Two Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GC×GC) in the Analysis of Complex Chemical Mixtures
UTC Prague: Comprehensive Two Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GC×GC) in the Analysis of Complex Chemical Mixtures
Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC) has become the state-of-the-art instrument for qualitative and quantitative analysis of volatile and semi-volatile complex mixtures and has emerged as a powerful separation tool for studying environmental samples, petroleum fractions, persistent organic pollutants, drugs, and many more.
This talk will be centered around plastic waste conversion to fuels and useable chemicals, microplastic consumption, and how to perform detailed chemical analyses of such systems.

Petr Vozka is an Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the California State University, Los Angeles. He is also the Director of the Complex Chemical Composition Analysis Lab (C³AL), where he focuses on the characterization of complex chemical mixtures, such as products from plastic waste conversion processes, oil spills, and microplastics via state-of-the-art techniques, such as two-dimensional gas chromatography and high-resolution mass spectrometry.
