Liquid and Gas Chromatographic Methods for Studying Solid and Solute Properties and Interactions
This in-depth workshop discovers how advanced sorption techniques can be used to gain accurate and reliable data on the interaction between different medias and surface and bulk properties of materials. This was explored by one of the world’s leading experts in sorption science, Professor of Particle Science at Faculty of Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London, and Founder & MD of Surface Measurement Systems, Prof. Daryl Williams.
Though chromatographic methods tend to be associated with analytical chemistry as well as separations science, chromatographic approaches are powerful physical chemistry methods for understanding interactions between solids and solutes, both in the gas and liquid phases.
Organized in coordination with the Collaborative Research Centre 1411 Design of Particulate Products, FAU – Erlangen, this presentation reviews a number of the physical chemistry based chromatographic approaches, and will give a number of examples of these methods in operation including:
- Inverse gas chromatography determination of adsorbent surface areas including freeze dried solids, at room temperature and room humidity
- Determination of diffusion constants for porous catalysts for liquid phase reactants using zero column length chromatography
-Protein-protein interactions in solution and aggregation propensity using self interaction chromatography to determine second virial coefficients
