Nanoparticles

The small size of nanoparticles is of utmost importance in order for them to maintain their unique optical, electronic, thermal and chemical properties. Measuring their size is therefore critical to understanding these nano-scale materials.

Zeta potential is another important parameter that is related to nanoparticle stability or aggregation in a dispersion, and can have significant implications on product performance.

Light scattering, especially dynamic light scattering, and electrophoretic light scattering are now the standard techniques for measuring the size and zeta potential of dispersed nanoparticles. Two new techniques, Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA), and also Resonant Mass Measurement (RMM) can also be used for sizing nanoparticles as well as counting the number of particles present in a sample, and both are especially suited to polydisperse samples. Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is provided via the Malvern NanoSight range of instruments, and RMM is available via Archimedes.

Malvern offers a range of fast, reliable and simple to use systems that incorporate light scattering technology, resonant mass measurement or nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), which are used to:

  • Determine nanoparticle size.
  • Detect the formation of aggregates in a sample containing nanoparticles.
  • Measure zeta potential for an indication of nanoparticle stability.
  • Count the number of nanoparticles present in a sample.

Non-aqueous zeta potential measurements of carbon black powders Application Note (English)

The measurement of the zeta potential of non-aqueous suspensions is challenging as the electrophoretic mobility of the particles is very small. Here we describe how the Zetasizer Nano in combination with a universal dip cell accessory gives excellent...

Measuring Zeta Potential - Laser Doppler Electrophoresis Explained Technical Note (English)

This technical note describes the technique used to measure zeta potential and discusses the technology used in the market leading range of Zetasizer instruments, the Nano series.



Experimental progress in high conductivity electrophoresis using the Diffusion Barrier Technique Poster (English)

In this work we demonstrate latex measurements up to 4M KCL using the Diffusion Barrier Technique, thereby demonstrating sample-limited, rather than instrument-limited characterization of high conductivity samples.
