Advances in Dynamic Vapor Sorption Methods and Surface Energy Characterization

The workshop will cover in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) techniques, from theory to common applications in material characterization. Both DVS and IGC are widely used techniques to characterize materials across different stages of product formulation, manufacturing and quality control.

The workshop aimed for industry professionals and PhD students using DVS and IGC techniques whose studies are in the fields of pharmaceuticals, food, building material, catalysts, zeolites and nano materials. Attendees will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and IGC techniques.

Date: Thursday, 30th July 2015

Time: 10 – 4pm (GMT)

Venue: Room C615 Roderic Hall Building, Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London, SW7 2BX
