  • Publication number: 20190091605
    Abstract: An analysis method according to the present invention includes: producing a plurality of kinds of polyhydric alcohol compounds by subjecting a copolymer of a conjugated diene compound with an aromatic vinyl compound to ozonolysis and reducing the ozonolysis product; separating a sample solution containing the plurality of kinds of polyhydric alcohol compounds with a liquid chromatograph; and introducing the separated sample into a mass spectrometer to analyze results of the detection. Specifically, the present invention relates to a method for analyzing a styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) including: separating with a comprehensive two-dimensional liquid chromatograph a polyhydric alcohol compound obtained by subjecting a styrene-butadiene rubber of 1,3-butadiene as the conjugated diene compound and styrene as the aromatic vinyl compound to ozonolysis and reducing the ozonolysis product; and then analyzing the polyhydric alcohol compound by measuring with a mass spectrometer.
