Seminar on Powder Rheology and Surface Area Characterization


This seminar will give you an overview of different methods for powder characterization - what they do and how they work, which is crucial for its processing, transport and storage. Knowing a powder's properties and behaviour, like its flowability or cohesion not only helps to run quality control but also to study powders in R&D or when up-scaling from R&D to high volumes. This seminar will further cover the basics of surface area measurement to correlation of data for actual applicability in terms of dissolution rates, reactivity, catalytic activity and disintegration.
