Particle size analysis in the range 0.01-3500 microns. For nanoparticle analysis see dedicated section.
Nanomaterials are defined as materials possessing, at minimum, one external dimension measuring 1-100 nm. Nanomaterials can occur naturally, created as the by-products of combustion reactions or produced purposefully through engineering to perform a specialized function. These materials can have different physical and chemical properties as compared to their bulk-form counterparts.
The properties of nanomaterials, particularly their size, offer various advantages and versatility to be tailored for specific requirements that accentuate their usefulness. An additional advantage is their high porosity, which increases demand for their use in a multitude of industries including healthcare, cosmetics, environmental preservation and air purification. The physical and chemical properties of nanoparticles are extremely important to their performance. The key parameters of nanoparticles’ physical characterization include size, shape, surface and morphology.
Zeta potential is one of the important physical related to the long-term stability of the nanoparticles in solution and suspension. The chemical composition and the intrinsic toxicological properties of the chemical are important.
