Future Developments

Since the introduction of the first commercially available SFC system in the early 1980s, hyphenated flow cell and mobile-phase elimination interfaces for SFC/FTIR have attained a high level of sophistication. Although the flow cell approach has a number of advantages, including mechanical simplicity and interfacing with other detectors, mobile-phase elimina tion interfaces offer greater sensitivity, the potential of using strongly IR-absorbing mobile phases (including modified mobile phases) and enables library-searchable condensed-phase spectra to be measured. Therefore it is reasonable to expect continued evolutionary development of the latter approach. It is also likely that improvements to the instrumentation will be application-oriented. As solutions to difficult analytical problems are sought, it can be expected that SFC/FTIR will be investigated with new columns such as micro-packed columns (250-300 |im i.d capillaries packed with 2-5 |im HPLC packing materials) and new mobile phases such as the fluorocarbons.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
