Practical Problem Solving in Chemical Analysis


Workshop Title
Practical Problem Solving in Chemical Analysis

Workshop Date / Venue
September 02-06, 2006 / Emirates B, Sheraton Deira Hotel, Dubai , UAE

Workshop Reference

Workshop Duration
Five days

Workshop Description
Almost all analytical workshops are technique oriented. Each tends to be reviewed in depth, but in isolation and without reference to other methods. What distinguishes this workshop is that it takes a multidisciplined and integrated look at analytical techniques, with emphasis on the strengths and limitations of each in a problem-solving context.

The workshop is designed to give a practical approach to the solution of method problems and technical problems that may require multiple technologies. It will cover proper sampling procedures, most of the various analytical and physical measurement tools available for problem solving, including separation methods and classical and instrumental techniques. Additionally, the workshop will cover the important computer procedures that can be used in the analysis of the data.

Through the three workshops offered during the 5 days of this workshop, the instructors and participants will practice our approach on examples and participants' problems.

Participants are encouraged to bring several problems with them to the workshop.

Workshop Objectives
Upon the successful completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

•  Solve problems in cost effective and timely manner

•  Acquire an integrated overview of many techniques and procedures used in modern analytical and physical measurement laboratories for polymers, petrochemicals, industrial chemicals and related materials.

•  Assess values and limitations of each technique and be prepared to make practical choices to apply in the solution of difficult problems

•  Evaluate the importance of sampling, separation procedures and data treatment in problem solving

And importantly, you will have an opportunity to get help with your own problems in one of the three scheduled workshops.

Who Should Attend
The workshop is intended for experienced professionals, who have responsibilities or interest in chemical analysis and problem solving, including: Analysts, Chemists, Engineers and Managers. Further, those involved with characterizing unknowns and handling difficult analytical problems in research, quality control, plant support, regulatory compliance or customer support should find this workshop very useful.

Workshop Certificate
Petrolab Engineering certificate will be issued to all attendees completing minimum of 75% of the total tuition hours of the workshop.

Workshop Fee
US $ 2,950 per Delegate. This rate includes Participant's Pack (Folder, Manual, Hand-outs, etc.), buffet lunch, coffee/tea on arrival, morning & afternoon of each day.
