Industrial chemistry provides a rich variety of complex chemical problems. Modern synthetic chemists and formulations experts continue to develop new and different products to address an enormous array of customer needs. As these new products progress through synthesis, formulation, product development, manufacturing, and customer use, scientists and engineers encounter decision points that require data. Mass spectrometry is a powerful tool to produce data around both chemical structures and determination of different species within a complex product. At Intertek Allentown, we have a skilled mass spectrometry team, a variety of mass spectrometers, and a customer base providing us a smorgasbord of different problems to which we can contribute data, results, and understanding. In this presentation, we will share several stories about using an integrated analytical approach to problem-solving. Integral to these stories will be different kinds of mass spectrometry, including GC/MS, LC/MS, MALDI, ToF-SIMS, and flow injection ESI.
Scott Hanton is currently the General Manager of Intertek Allentown. Intertek Allentown is the research analytical contract lab for North America within the broader Intertek network. Scott earned a BS in Chemistry from the Honors College at Michigan State University and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After graduation, Scott joined the central analytical department at Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. as the technical expert in the Laser Applications Lab. Scott brought MALDI technology to Air Products and transferred to the Mass Spectrometry Lab. During his time in the Mass Spectrometry Lab, Scott did extensive research on MALDI of polymers, and published broadly in this area. During his career at Air Products, Scott moved through leadership positions as Mass Spectrometry Lab Supervisor, Organic Analysis Group Head and Section Manager. In 2010, Air Products outsourced the central analytical department to Intertek. Scott became the Operations Manager for Intertek Allentown, and last year became the General Manager for the business.
