Advances in Dynamic Vapor Sorption Methods and Surface Energy Characterization

The workshop will cover in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) technique and iGC-SEA (Inverse Gas Chromatography – Surface Energy Analyzer), the most-advanced scientific instrument in determining surface energy. Individual whose works are in line with studying materials such as solids, powders, particulates, fibers, films and nano materials will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC-SEA.

Speakers from industry and academia will discuss DVS and iGC-SEA, from theory to common applications and present real case studies. In addition, an instrument demonstrations will also be taken place at the end of all presentations.

Date: Friday, 15th April, 2016

Time: 10 – 3pm (BST)

Venue: Room B34, Boots Science Building, University of Nottingham, NG7 2QL.
