The Indian Academy of Sciences’ National Chemical Laboratory conducted a study entitled, “Synthesis of Silver Nanoparticles by Sophorolipids: Effect of Temperature and Sophorolipid Structure on the Size of Particles”. Researchers used Brookhaven’s NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer to determine Dynamic Light Scattering measurements in characterizing silver nanoparticles including its ligand shell.
This specific technique was used to determine the nanoparticle’s hydrodynamic size, whereas other analysis techniques only observed the metallic core. The results obtained from the NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer were then compared with temperature. This information was then used to carry out the reaction in continuous flow experiments.
Particle size analysis through DLS techniques determines the size and distribution profile of small particles in suspensions or polymers in solutions which are both valuable to modern day scientific research. Brookhaven Instruments’ NanoBrook 90Plus Particle Size Analyzer delivers fast, routine and sub-micron measurements. To achieve accurate results for any application, scientists and researchers use only high-grade particle size analyzers.
