The aim of this project is to evaluate the coupling of supercritical fluid chromatography with high resolution mass spectrometry and detector CORONA.
Today, a lot of additive compounds are added in petroleum products to improve their final performance properties. Enhanced separation power is necessary for identification and quantification proposes. In this project, identification low quantity additives in complex petroleum matrix will be investigated using online coupling of supercritical fluid chromatography with mass spectrometry. In a second step, Corona detection will be investigated in order to quantify the identified additives.
PhD degree in analytical chemistry with a first relevant experience in separation science and mass spectrometry (MS).
The knowledge of petroleum products is a plus.
- Separation science (theory and practical knowledge in SFC would be essential, experiences in liquid or gas chromatography could be equally important)
- High resolution mass spectrometry (TOF, IM-MS)
- Ability to synthesize
- Well organized / Autonomy
- Good oral and written communication skills
- Fluent English
