The study of surface and interface properties is fundamental in understanding how microscopic interactions influence the bulk properties of materials. The characterization of surfaces and interfaces is critical in a wide range of industries including consumer products, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals and life sciences. In each of these application areas, the interaction of molecules and particles with surfaces and interfaces can influence the material properties of an end product.
Malvern provide a range of easy to use particle size, zeta potential, gel permeation chromatography and rheology instrumentation which can be used in the study of surfaces and interfaces to:
- Understand interactions at the surfaces of particles and solids
- Determine bulk properties of materials (over time or under stress conditions)
- Reduce product development time
- Optimize product performance.
