Particle Characterization Workshop


This workshop is for those who are interested to learn more about the various aspects of porous material characterization to study the structural, adsorption, wetting and transport properties of various classes of porous solids.

This workshop will be beneficial for users of BET surface area and pore volume analyzers measuring porous nanostructures, biomaterials, adsorbents, catalysts, membranes, pharmaceuticals, filters etc.

Techniques such as laser diffraction and dynamic light scattering used to characterize particles, colloids and powders from nano to micron-sized range will also be discussed.

Details about the workshop:
