HPLC-MS

(High Performance Liquid Chromatography) The mixture is placed on a stream of liquid called mobile phase and moved in a solid or liquid medium called stationary phase to separate the components. The molecular weight can be calculated by the MS detector.

QCM

An analyzer that uses a crystal oscillator (also known as a crystal oscillator). Since it can detect minute masses on the order of nanograms, it is also used for analysis of adsorption phenomena on the surface and detection of biopolymers (proteins, etc.).

ITC

A device that titrates a ligand solution against a biopolymer solution maintained at an arbitrary temperature within 2 to 80 ° C. and directly measures the heat of reaction of intermolecular interaction caused by mixing the two solutions. By using this device, the coupling constant, the coupling thermodynamic quantity, and the number of coupling sites can be obtained.

UV-vis

Qualitative analysis (identification) and quantitative analysis can be performed by irradiating light in the wavelength range of the ultraviolet and visible region at which the sample absorbs. It also can measure the ratio (transmittance) of light transmitted to the opposite side of the incident direction.

GPC-MALS (3 units)

Gel permeation chromatography. A column filled with a porous filler that utilizes a "Size Exclusion" mechanism between the pores on the surface of the filler and the polymer. Not only the average molecular weight can be obtained, but also the "molecular weight distribution" peculiar to the polymer can be obtained. Furthermore, by taking advantages of MALS (multi-angle light scattering detector), it is possible to detect the absolute molecular weight and the radius of inertia.

FFF-MALS (2 units)

Field flow fractionation. A method that uses a method to separate the size of macromolecules and fine particles dissolved or dispersed in a liquid without using columns. Not only the average molecular weight but also the "molecular weight distribution" peculiar to the sample can be obtained. Furthermore, the combination with MALS (multi-angle light scattering detector), it is possible to detect accurately the absolute molecular weight and the radius of inertia.

CD

When a substance with a chiral internal structure absorbs circularly polarized light, there is a difference in absorbance between left-handed circularly polarized light and right-handed circularly polarized light (circular dichroism). It is possible to obtain useful information on the three-dimensional structure of other optically active substances. It also provides useful information when a substance that is not an optically active substance interacts with a polymer substance and induces chirality.
