Micromeritics Material Characterization Seminar

Micromeritics Material Characterization Seminar - Houston

The event will be held on May 15, 2018
Hilton University of Houston
4450 University DR,
Houston Texas, 77204, USA

The seminar will focus on four main areas:

Catalysis and Catalysts
 - Simon Yunes, Ph.D. Senior Scientist, Micromeritics Instrument Corp

Fundamental characterization of the physical adsorption
technique providing information about the texture of the
catalyst, while chemisorption technique reveals the dispersion
and disposition of the active species located inside the
pore to carry out a continuous reaction of the adsorbate
molecule to mainly produce the desired final product.

The Particle Size Paradox
 - Jack Saad, Associate Scientist, Micromeritics Instrument Corp
Dynamic image analysis 

  • Sedimentation 
  • Static light-scattering (laser diffraction)
  • Electric sensing zone
  • Air permeability
  • Dynamic light scattering (DLS)

Understanding Size by DLS & Zeta Potential Applications
 - Jack Saad, Associate Scientist, Micromeritics Instrument Corp.

How size is determined by DLS and why is it different from size by SEM and TEM 

  • What zeta potential is and how to use the data 
  • The relationship between size and zeta potential

External Morphology and Elemental
Characterization of Catalyst by Desktop SEM-EDS
- Jeff Sherman, PhD, Vice President, Micromeritics Instrument Corp.

  • Under one-minute catalyst surface topography
    investigation with up to 130,000x magnification
  • Understanding data from SEM and
    how to apply to your research 
  • Elemental composition examination using SEM-EDS
