Evolved Gas Analysis and Multi-step Pyrolysis of Cyanoacrylate Glue
contributed by CDS Analytical |
This application note demonstrates Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) and Multi-step Pyrolysis (MSP) with GC-MS on cyanoacrylate glues.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives, first patented in 1949(1) and marketed under the trade names Super Glue and Krazy Glue, bond nearly instantly to surfaces. The cyanoacrylate monomer polymerizes quickly in the presence of water, forming strong chains. While standard cyanaoacrylate glues can be nearly 100% cyanoacrylate, custom formulations also exist.
