Event Overview

From biological processes to chemical applications, synthesized materials play a key role in research and development and manufacturing across various industries. Monitoring chemical reactions during the creation of these materials is critical to optimizing output and ensuring quality. Analysis of reaction kinetics leads to understanding the overall mechanism and to ascertaining ideal reaction conditions. UV-Visible absorption spectroscopy is a productive technique for monitoring reactions. The measured absorbance is directly proportional to the concentration of a given reactant, product, or intermediate. In this webinar, hear from our expert on valuable analyses facilitated with UV-Visible measurements, as well as helpful sampling considerations for improving accuracy.

Learn how to save time, effort, and investment in biochemical manufacturing with UV-Visible spectroscopy analysis techniques.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Monitor the formation or loss of components as a chemical reaction progresses through UV-Visible spectroscopy.
  • Identify the order of a reaction and calculate the appropriate rate constant through UV-Visible analysis.
  • Understand the impact of environmental factors on the observed reaction rate as well as sample considerations when monitoring reaction kinetics.

Who Should Attend:

  • Pharmaceutical and other research and development scientists
  • Academic/teaching lab managers
  • Quality controls/quality assurance managers
