What will you learn on this course?

This course covers all the essential theory about Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) as a means of sample preparation.

The course will review the different types of SPE processes used for sample extraction including non-polar SPE, polar SPE and ion exchange SPE. It will review different types of sorbents used for each process and understand the chemistry behind the extraction of the analysis.

The knowledge acquired will then be used to determine suitable sorbents for the extraction of a suitable sample, understand the extraction process and how to analyse the extracts using GC-MS or LC-MS. The course is designed to increase expertise for users of SPE.

The course will also review the importance of selecting appropriate methods and systems and will conclude with the benefits and uses of SPE within various industries.
