e-SPRESSO WEBINAR-Carbon Black Essentials: Surface area Measurements- Rubber Filler, Black Pigment and Conductive Additive for Batteries
Carbon black is an essential active-filler component of tires – it's not used just for its color or as a bulking agent – to increase strength and wear resistance. Carbon black for rubber is graded and qualified according to BET surface area (NSA) and external surface area (STSA). Surface area measurements also facilitate an understanding of demands related to dispersants in e.g., paints, and the interfacial area for electron and ion transport in batteries (and it’s reactivity with electrolytes).
The new Anton Paar Nova 600/800 series brings state-of-the-art physisorption technology to these demanding applications, according to the NOVA design principles.
-Next-generation hardware, and accompanying software features:
-Operational simplicity across the entire analysis workflow: preparation and measurement
-Velocity, so you can have both speed of analysis and precision
-Adaptability to keep pace with your analytical needs– today and tomorrow

Trainer: Dr. Martin Thomas
Dr. Martin Thomas, Anton Paar QuantaTec’s lead scientist, has more than 37 years of experience in powder and porous materials characterization, 27 of those with Quantachrome Instruments before Anton Paar’s acquisition in 2018. Dr. Thomas graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with a master’s degree in analytical chemistry followed by a Ph.D. in physical-inorganic chemistry. He is named co-inventor on 10 patents relating to porous solids and their characterization, and is co-author of the book “Characterization of Porous Solids and Powders: Surface Area, Pore Size and Density” (published by Springer).
