Anton Paar Applications
An Insight into the Structure of Surfactants
The structure of inhomogeneous (core-shell) nanoparticles was studied with the SAXSpace system. The internal structure of Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate micelles in water was determined by calculating the radial electron density profile.
Continuous Monitoring of Hydrogen Peroxide
Relevant for detergents/cleaners, descaling agent, beverages, food industry, pharmaceuticals, personal care
Concentration Measurement of Sodium Hydroxide Solutions by Refractive Index
The concentration of sodium hydroxide in water can be easily and quickly determined by refractive index measurement.
Refractive Index Measurement of Ionic Liquids
Ionic liquids are special designer solvents as they are nonvolatile and liquid at ambient temperature, leading to a wide range of applications. Their refractive index helps to control the quality and also to characterize them.
Have a Good Trip
Refractometers are widely used in the automotive industry, e.g. to control the quality of oils, chemical liquids and solids such as plastics and glasses.
Mesoporous thin films - Investigating the structure of multi-layered films by GISAXS
Single- and double-layered mesoporous thin films have been analyzed by GISAXS for their structural properties using the SAXSpoint system.
Nanoindentation approach to mechanical testing of extremely soft materials
Identifying three different particle sizes in one sample with DLS
Particle suspensions often contain more than one size of particle. However, many particle analyzers cannot resolve particle mixtures, instead they detect an average of all sizes. The Litesizer™ 500 can detect three sizes in one sample.
Nanoparticles for Ceramics: Size, Stability & pH
In nanoparticle suspensions that will be used in ceramics, particle size and stability are of vital importance. Suspension stability is essential to ensure that the particles to stay in suspension, and maintain constant particle size.
Temperature-dependent GISAXS studies on thin films
The temperature-induced decomposition of a thin film structure has been studied using the SAXSpoint system with the new temperature-controlled GISAXS stage.
An insight into the Structure of Copolymer Surfactants
The structure of inhomogeneous (core-shell) nanoparticles was studied with the SAXSpoint system. The internal structure of Pluronic P123 micelles in water was determined by calculating the radial electron density profile.
Collagen - A Validation Sample for SAXS Systems
The performance of the SAXSpoint 2.0 system is evaluated by measurements of tendon collagen. SAXSpoint 2.0 produces data with excellent resolution in the entire angular range and delivers true 2D SWAXS images.
Monitoring the Washing Efficiency of Stained Cotton Fabrics
The zeta potential serves as an indicator for stain removal of differently soiled textile fabrics and thus helps to optimize detergent formulations.
Tuning of Solid Surface Properties by Self-Assembled Monolayers
The zeta potential measurement assists in tailoring the properties of technical and biomedical surfaces using self-assembled monolayers.
SAXSpoint with MetalJet Source
SAXSpoint now integrates the high-brightness MetalJet X-ray source enabling ultra-fast SAXS measurements in the laboratory.
