Nanoparticle research for industry

Several industries use particles and powders in the production of specific products. Particles must meet certain requirements to have the right influence on a product. Solids Solutions does extensive research into this. In our laboratory in Delft we work on particle and powder technology and nanoparticle testing. For this we have various methods and techniques at our disposal. We do this for various sectors, including the pharmaceutical, (petro) chemical and building materials industries, but also for the automotive and food industry.

BET surface analysis of nanoparticles

By means of a BET surface analysis of nanoparticles the BET surface of particles can be calculated. This is done by adsorbing an inert gas onto the surface of a solid. In most cases we use nitrogen, but certain substances require other types of gas to achieve the desired result. By means of physical gas adsorption, not only the specific surface area can be calculated, but also the pore volume and the pore size distribution. The desired information can be obtained in two ways. By means of the flow method or by means of the volumetric technique. The latter is used when slightly more detailed information is required.

Solids Solutions seminars

Solids Solutions advises when you get stuck in the development process of a specific product. In addition, you can contact us to attend seminars and attend presentations in the field of powder and particle technology. We also regularly organize events around this specialty. If you would like to read research documentation and published articles by Solids Solutions yourself, you can request them in our knowledge center. For more information, please feel free to contact us. Or present us your problem or challenge so we can look for a suitable solution for you.
