Extensive research into particles and powders provides knowledge about their properties. This knowledge comes in handy when developing industrial products. You can think of medicines, foodstuffs, building materials and chemicals. At Solids Solutions, we are specialised in particle and powder technology. You can contact us if you get stuck in the development of a specific product. We also offer workshops and seminars, and give presentations on various topics. If you want more information about a specific research, you can visit our knowledge centre.
Solids Solutions focuses on the research of particles of different types and sizes. We also peform nanoparticle testing & research, to determine the properties and the size. Nanoparticles vary in size from 1 to 100 nanometers and are composed of atoms or molecules. They occur naturally, but are also added in synthetic form to certain products. A number of specific properties of nanoparticles improve the quality of certain products. For example, substances can be mixed better with the help of nanoparticles.
BET surface analysis of nanoparticles
In order to determine the surface of nanoparticles, BET analysis is often used. With this method gas is adsorbed on the surface of the particles. Usually this is nitrogen, but other types of gas are also used. This depends on the substance being analysed. Besides the BET surface area analysis of nanoparticles, other techniques are also used to calculate the size of particles. For example, light scattering, whereby information about the particle size can be obtained with the aid of a laser. Are you stuck in the development of a product and you do not know what causes it? Solids Solutions will help you find a suitable solution.
