Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) can measure dispersive and acid-base interactions on surfaces, which directly related to the adhesion between surfaces. iGC is particularly used to fibrous or powdery substrates, which can be challenging to characterize by other surface characterization techniques due to their rough surface and wicking phenomena.
In this informative and educational webinar, Dr. Anett Kondor will present the comparison of dispersive and acid-base contributions to adhesion in man-made cellulose fibre-reinforced thermoset composites, various nanofiller- polyurethane (thermoplastic) composites and surface modified silk particles. These interactions are measured by iGC.
