A guideline: Why knowledge of particle size is so important
Particle systems can be complex, their analysis does not have to be!C. Bellmann, A. Caspari, C. Moitzi and F. Babick in collaboration with Anton Paar
Particulate systems are present in various sizes with different property profiles in a variety of industrial areas. They are manufactured, modified, stored, transported, combined with other materials, but also used as final product. Therefore, particulate systems and their characterization play a major role in the development of new, innovative materials and processes.
Particle systems can be complex, but measuring them does not have to be!
In order to characterize particulate systems, combined instruments offering Dynamic light scattering and Electrophoretic light scattering (ELS) are widely used. DLS measures the particle size and particle size distribution of particles dispersed in a liquid, and ELS is used to determine the zeta potential.
Anton Paar's new guide to 'Dynamic and Electrophoretic Light Scattering' provides a compact introduction to the theory of light scattering and zeta potential measurement, as well as practical tips on sample preparation, the correct choice of measurement parameters and the interpretation of measurement results. It also includes examples from different application areas, where DLS and ELS are commonly used.

Ever wonder why you have to shake your bottle of ketchup or mustard before pouring? Or why, to get out of quicksand, you must move slowly? Or why you can run on the surface of a suspension of cornstarch in water, but you’d sink if you tried to walk on it? The common feature of all these con ... more
