Zeta Potential Applications

The physical properties of colloids and suspensions are strongly dependent on the nature and extent of the particle-liquid interface; the behavior of aqueous dispersions being especially sensitive to the electrical and ionic structure of the interface. The production and stability of colloids and suspensions are both intimately related to the so-called electrical double layer that […]

Role of Light Scattering in Production of Performance Polymers and Other Functional Materials

The majority of modern performance polymers are designed to enhance a particular material property. A number of high-profile engineering plastics, resins, and gels are made from these kinds of precursors. Light scattering can be used to solve many of the unique problems encountered when working with unusual functional plastics and associated polymeric precursors.
