About PEEK Derivatization

Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and other polyaryl ether ketones (PAEK’s) exhibit strong resistance to solvents and are nearly impossible to analyze in their native forms.

  • Approaches

    By using a reversible derivatization we can make the polymer soluble in organic solvents, which in turn allows us to test the samples. Most notably molecular weight determination by gel permeation chromatography (GPC). 

  • Sample Considerations

    Sample should be in small pieces, our scientists can prepare your sample if necessary.
