DVS and iGC-SEA Sorption Techniques, the Latest Advancement & Application – Sheffield University

The workshop covers in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) technique, from theory to main applications, and iGC-SEA (Inverse Gas Chromatography – Surface Energy Analyser). Both DVS and iGC-SEA are widely used techniques to characterize materials across different stages of product formulation, manufacturing and quality control.

The workshop is aimed for industry professionals, researchers and PhD students. Attendees will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC techniques in characterising materials such as powder, fiber, polymer, thin films, composite, nano materials, biomaterials, building materials and pharmaceutical materials.

Learn about:

  • DVS and iGC-SEA – advanced sorption techniques for physico-chemical characterization of complex solids
  • Capability of the instruments and an overview of applications in various industries
  • Some examples and case studies such as moisture sorption properties of materials relating to their drying and shelf life stability; determination of amorphous contents and vapour-induced phase changes (glass transition temperature and critical relative humidity); diffusion and permeability studies; surface energy, surface heterogeneity mapping, and adhesion/cohesion, BET surface areas and water sorption isotherm
  • Overview of benefits when coupled with different microscopic and spectroscopic techniques (Raman/IR/video camera)
  • Understanding surface energy (SE) and the different experimental techniques in measuring SE
