Sorption Technology: The key methods in investigating moisture sorption properties

The workshop is aimed for industry professionals, researchers and PhD students. Attendees will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of most advanced sorption techniques.

Learn about:

  • The advanced sorption techniques for physico-chemical characterization of complex solids
  • Examples and case studies of 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 iGC as the most accurate and practical experimental techniques in measuring SE
