The hyphenation of thermal sample treatment techniques such as thermal desorption and pyrolysis with gas chromatography gives a versatile and powerful tool in the study of polymers. An inexpensive system where thermal treatment at different inlet temperature ramp rates is shown. Results obtained indicate the interesting potentials of fast ramp rates for the characterization of polymer composition. The absence of a heated transfer line and switching valves, which are often present in conventional set-ups, eliminates the risk of losses of high molecular weight components. Further advantages of the technique are the simplicity and versatility as well as it's inexpensive nature.
