Advances in Dynamic Vapor Sorption Methods and Surface Energy Characterization

The workshop will cover in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) technique, from theory to common applications, and iGC-SEA (Inverse Gas Chromatography – Surface Energy Analyser), the most-advanced scientific instrument in determining surface energy. 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-SEA in characterizing powders, films, nanomaterials, microporous materials and fibers in the fields of pharmaceuticals, food, building material, personal care, energy and agrichemicals.

If you have questions regarding DVS and iGC-SEA applications, application scientists from Surface Measurement Systems will be happy to answer your questions.

Date: Thursday, 17th March 2016

Time: 10 – 4pm (GMT)

Venue: W102 Law Court Building, De Havilland Campus, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, Herts, AL10 9EU
