Title: Method Development and Validation Strategy for the Karl Fischer Titration Process

Abstract: Karl Fischer titrations are used throughout the chemical industry for evaluating moisture content of products and raw materials. This presentation will demonstrate techniques to evaluate the solubility of a sample in the Karl Fischer reagent solution, and make proper choices in co-solvent to ensure an accurate and reliable titration. After developing a suitable solvent system, the titration must be validated and techniques for method validation will also be discussed.

Speaker:  Bruce Herzig
Date & Time: Tuesday 16th October, 2:35 PM -  3:35 PM
Location: Iris Room
Title: Latest Developments in Ionic Liquid Stationary Phase Technology

Abstract: Over the years, extensive evaluations of columns manufactured with ionic liquid stationary phases have occurred. Their main strength was discovered to be unique selectivity. This selectivity is made possible due to the various combinations of cations and anions that are available along with spacer groups used to prepare these geminal dicationic phases. Columns prepared with di- or tricationic phases have the ability to perform many of the same applications as columns made with polysiloxane polymer or polyethylene glycol stationary phases of similar polarity, but with slight elution order changes. This often results in increased resolution and/or shorter run times. This presentation will compare and contrast the selectivity of the ionic liquid stationary phases with traditional phases of similar or like selectivity for applications with a variety of different sample types from petrochemical, pharmaceutical, environmental, food, beverage, flavor or fragrance industries.
