Anton Paar Applications
Determination of Camphor by Polarimetry
Camphor is naturally produced by trees of the laurel family. It has a strong aromatic odour and is used for various medical and non-medical applications.
Starch Decomposition with Subsequent Polarimetric Content Determination
This method is suitable for the determination of starch and high molecular weight starch degradation products in food or feedstuffs in compliance with the EC Commission Directive 86/174/EEC and Council Directive 96/25/EC. Please note that this method requi
Refractive Index of Essential Oils
The refractive index of essential oils is a quickly measured, easily generated quality parameter. Moreover, it helps to differentiate between different essential oils.
Refractometric analysis of fats and oils
The refractive index or butyro value of animal and vegetable fats and oils is a quickly measured, easily generated quality parameter value. Moreover, it helps to differentiate between different fats, such as butter and margarine.
Process Urea Measurement
Relevant for fertilizer, chemical industry, explosives, dermatological creams, synthetic resins
Continuous Monitoring of Hydrogen Peroxide
Relevant for detergents/cleaners, descaling agent, beverages, food industry, pharmaceuticals, personal care
Improve Digestion Quality and Save Money – Microwave Digestion rules out Open Digestion
Reliable elemental analysis results need robust sample preparation to destroy sample matrices or to separate matrix from analytes. The sample preparation step is by far the most error-prone and critical step of the analytical procedure.
Application PNR 12: Consistency of Cosmetics
The Penetrometer PNR 12 is suitable for consistency determinations in the cosmetic industry. Various test kits are available for different cosmetic products. The choice of the accessories depends on the consistency and conductivity of the sample.
Nanoindentation and Nanoscratch of Oxide Coatings on Thin Film Polymer Substrates
Cosmetics - Determining the Yield Point and Viscosity of Hair Gel with the RheolabQC
The rheological characterisation of cosmetic products gives essential information about their processing properties and the customer's evaluation of the end product.
Nanoindentation approach to mechanical testing of extremely soft materials
Nanotribological properties of Diamond like carbon thin flexible films on ACM rubber
Spherical Nanoindentation of Polyacrylamide Hydrogels using the Bioindenter (BHT)
Applications of nanoindentation in biology and medicine

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.
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.
