Round Table Discussion

Join this upcoming webinar to discover new insights and research into the vital property of Surface Area, and it’s measurement and analysis in the development of pharmaceutical materials, featuring a world-leading expert on Sorption Science, Dr. Daniel J. Burnett (Vice President, Surface Measurement Systems).

Surface area is a commonly measured property of pharmaceutical powders/particles/granules. Traditional surface area measurements are typically performed using volumetric Nitrogen or Krypton sorption isotherms. These measurements must be performed at cryogenic temperatures and under high vacuum.  For many organic solids, biomaterials, and polymers, these conditions can artificially induce structural and phase changes. 

Inverse Gas Chromatography (IGC) is another sorption technique that can routinely measure surface area for a wider range of materials.  Unlike volumetric techniques, IGC surface area measurements do not require high vacuum and can be performed at ambient temperatures.  In addition, IGC can measure surface areas at controlled relative humidity conditions.  For these reasons, IGC can directly determine surface areas of pharmaceutical ingredients at relevant storage and processing conditions.  Also, surface areas can be determined without exposing the sample to pressures and temperatures that may induced irreversible structural changes. 

In this review presentation, several case studies focused on measuring the surface areas of pharmaceutical and organic materials will be introduced.  Work will be highlighted by recent investigations from SMS, as well as a review of previously published work from other groups. Register free now!

We are excited to collaborate with Dr. Johanna Sygusch from the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology on our next webinar, exploring recent characterization research into advanced battery materials.

Nowadays many electronic devices are being operated by batteries, including everyday devices (e.g. laptop and smartphones), healthcare devices (e.g. toothbrush), tools, toys, and vehicles as well. The use of batteries is forecast to increase significantly in the upcoming years. Therefore, the development of long and high-performance batteries and also the need to recycle spent batteries in order to ensure the supply of critical raw materials increased significantly in the last years, but is a complex task since the individual batteries have rather complex structures and varying composition.

During the development of the battery materials, temperature stability is one of the key parameters besides energy density, power density, lifetime, charging rate, cost and safety. Furthermore, the understanding of the surface properties and interfacial interactions of the anode and cathode materials is crucial in order to improve and develop efficient manufacturing and recycling processes.

In this webinar we present the surface and interfacial properties of different cathode (LCO, NMC, LFP) and anode (natural and synthetic graphite) materials. Characteristic properties include the specific surface area, the surface energetics at different temperatures measured with inverse Gas Chromatography (IGC) as well as water and cyclohexane sorption behaviour by Dynamic Vapour Sorption (DVS). Furthermore, we are going to present some results on wettability characterization using optical contour analysis and the Washburn method, as well as bubble-attachment and analytical particle solvent extraction tests. We also discuss which challenges arise during the recycling of spent lithium ion batteries by using the separation process of froth flotation.

Dr. Sygusch and Dr. Kondor will, among other things, give a detailed introduction to the Inverse Gas Chromatography and Dynamic Vapor Sorption techniques. With a live Q&A to finish the session, this is an unmissable opportunity to gain fresh insight into this vitally important topic from two leading experts.

This free online workshop, was organised with Fraunhofer IFAM, and we explore using advanced vapor sorption techniques and instrumentation to explore and evaluate the diffusion behaviours of solid state materials.

Discussing this topic are two leading experts in vapor sorption analysis, Dr. Michael Hoffmann (Fraunhofer IFAM) & Dr. Anett Kondor (Surface Measurement Systems). They explore the Dynamic Vapor Sorption and Inverse Gas Chromatography techniques, and how they are employed by labs across the world to provide detailed insight on diffusion.
