We are happy to invite you to participate in our Australian free presentation; Advances In Particulate Materials Characterisation Using Sorption Probes

This presentation will be held from 20th-22nd October 2014 and is an excellent opportunity to meet a specialist in the field of Sorption Science from Surface Measurement Systems (SMS) based in the UK.

Presentation content:

Measuring the surface energy of powders, fibres or films is crucial to understanding how they interact with other liquids and solids, for example how strongly particles adhere together, or how strongly a liquid will bind to a surface.

Traditionally, surface energies are measured by liquid wetting angle techniques, however these can be difficult to implement reproducibly on free flowing powders.

This talk will review the applications and successes of sorption based approaches for materials characterisation. We will discuss the principles of inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) and Dynamic Vapour Sorption (DVS) techniques and the properties that can be measured. The benefits of DVS and iGC will be discussed and compared to other known techniques such as contact angle and AFM. Further advances and developments will be illustrated including the recent hyphenation of DVS with both Raman spectroscopy and video microscopy.

Duration:
The presentation will be divided into two 45min sessions, with a break in the middle for tea/coffee and refreshments.

Registration:
Participation is free of charge however it is essential to register. You can register by completing the registration form on our web site or by sending us an email with your details to enquiries@atascientific.com.au. RSVP by 19th October 2014.
