Catalysts are essential facilitators in biological as well as industrial processes, applied for energy processing, petroleum refining, chemical processing as well as food production. They depend on the same basic properties of active surface area, pore size and pore volume, particle size, surface acidity, fluidization behavior, cohesion strength, elutriation rate, permeability, and structure. Count on Anton Paar’s high-precision solutions for analyzing and characterizing catalysts, including gas adsorption analysis, powder rheometry, microwave synthesis, particle size analysis, and X-ray scattering.

Anton Paar Applications
Better Sample Preparation of Polymers - Microwave-induced Oxygen Combustion (MIC)
If you have any problems with digesting plastic & polymer samples for elemental analysis due to inhomogeneity or high residual carbon content think about the unique microwave-induced oxygen combustion from Anton Paar.
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.
Nanomaterials | Platinum-doped TiO2 Nanofibers and Nanowires
Herein is summarized an easy large scale synthesis of TiO2 nanotubes which were doped with platinum and characterized towards their photocatalytic activity.
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.
SAXSpoint with MetalJet Source
SAXSpoint now integrates the high-brightness MetalJet X-ray source enabling ultra-fast SAXS measurements in the laboratory.
In-situ GISAXS heating experiments on self-assembled Gold nanoparticles
Thermal morphology changes of self-assembled Gold nanoparticles have been studied using the SAXSpoint system with the temperature controlled GISAXS stage.
