McGill University Materials Characterization Workshop

Investigating the Aqueous Interactions of Bioactive Glasses via Vapour Sorption

The workshop is a free half-day event on Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) techniques. DVS and iGC can characterize materials across product formulation, manufacturing and quality control.

Speakers will present applications and case studies in material characterization. This is an excellent opportunity to better understand the DVS and inverse GC techniques.

The workshop is for professionals and researchers interested in the physico-chemical properties of solid state materials. We aim to increase the awareness of these characterization techniques.

Date: Monday, 16th May2016

Time: 9:00am – 1:30pm (Eastern)
