Advances in Dynamic Vapor Sorption Methods and Surface Energy Characterization

The material characterization workshop is a free one-day event on Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) techniques. Both DVS and iGC are widely used to characterize materials across different stages of product formulation, manufacturing and quality control.

Speakers will present different applications and case studies in material characterization and there will be an instrument demonstration at the end of the workshop. This is an excellent opportunity to gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC techniques.

The workshop is aimed for industry professionals and researchers whose studies are in the fields of pharmaceuticals and food. Individuals from building materials sector will also gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC as scientists from Surface Measurement Systems are present to answer specific questions.

Date: Wednesday, 17th February 2016
