Do you process nanoparticles in products and get stuck in the development process? Then Solids Solutions can help you determine what is going wrong and what the solution might be. Solids Solutions is located in Delft and deals mainly with powder and particle technology. In our laboratory we research & test nanoparticles, but we also investigate other small particles, substances and powders. We have several research instruments and techniques at our disposal to determine the properties of particles.
BET surface analysis of nanoparticles
Solids Solutions carries out, among other things, a BET surface analysis of nanoparticles in the laboratory. We do this by means of physical gas adsorption, where an inert gas is adsorbed on the surface of a solid. In most cases nitrogen is suitable to be used, but some substances require a different kind of gas, such as carbon dioxide or argon. By means of gas adsorption, several things can be calculated, such as the specific surface area, but also the pore volume and the pore size distribution. We generally use two different techniques to get the desired information. Which one we use depends on the information needed.
Solids Solutions academy
Solids Solutions can help you when you get stuck in the development of your product, but we also share our knowledge in other ways. For example, we regularly organise courses and seminars in the field of particle and powder technology. You can also attend presentations and we organise various events. We also participate in a number of congresses and exhibitions each year. You can see when these take place in the events calendar on the website. If you would like to delve into publications and articles about our research, you can find these in our knowledge centre. Do you need specialised advice when developing your product? Then feel free to contact us.
