Particle Size Analysis for Optimizing Soil Liming


Humanity has been utilizing lime as an agrochemical for millennia. As early as 2800 BC, Celtic Britons were known to pulverize bulk chalk or limestone into a granulated powder and spread it across the topsoil of crop fields. This rudimentary fertilizer reacted with acidic soils, neutralizing their pH levels through the release of hydroxide ions, […]

Particle Size Analysis of Coffee


Particle size analysis in the food and beverage sector is concerned with numerous physical phenomena observed in granulated solids, emulsions, liquids, and more. The particulate properties of consumable products determine many of the properties we naturally associate with food and drink, from taste and smell to cosmetic appearance. Particle geometries and distribution are also critical […]

Particle Analysis of Dispersed Carbon Nanotubes


Chemical vapor growth of cylindrical structures comprising monomolecular graphitic sheets was first observed decades ago, but the fabrication of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) remains a relatively emergent technology. These quasi-one-dimensional structures are increasingly used as a material reinforcement, with great potential for use in nanotechnology engineering, electronics, and pharmaceuticals. Particle […]

Outlining the Importance of Surface Area Analysis


Surface area analysis refers to the measurement of a particle’s available surface. It is important because it is the means by which a solid interacts with its surroundings, whether they are gases, liquid, or other solids. Generally as particle size decreases, surface area increases, however if porosity is generated the increase in surface area can […]

Particle Size Analysis in the Pharmaceutical Sector


Pharmaceutical products are comprised of tightly-controlled ratios of biologically active ingredients and excipient materials, the latter of which are designed to act as a drug carrying vehicle. The relationship between these compounded chemicals is critical in understanding drug dosage and efficacy, with multiple parameters affecting the ideal composition values of bulk medicinal products. Particle size, […]

Outlining Powder Flow Analysis


Powder flow analysis is a method for determining the material properties and characteristics of powdered solids in bulk. Bulk powders exhibit vastly different mechanical attributes in dynamic or static states, behaving with mutable characteristics under varying conditions. Compressed, static powders often display similar properties to consolidated materials – yet when that same substance is subject […]

The Applications of Dynamic Light Scattering


Light can typically travel uninterrupted through a homogenous liquid sample, even if it is refracted or if the color of the liquid absorbs some of its wavelengths. This is because transparent liquid particles will transmit light rather than reflecting it. If a liquid sample contains nanoparticles or particulates however, these microscopic solids will block and […]
