Material Characterization Seminar 
- Boston -

The event will be held on
June 12, 2018

Boston Marriott Newton
2345 Commonwealth Avenue,
Newton, Massachusetts, USA 02466

The seminar will focus on four main areas:

Assessing the Texture of Porous Materials
- Jeff Kenvin, Ph.D. Senior Scientist, Micromeritics Instrument Corp.

A variety of modeling approaches have been employed to characterize the texture of porous materials using adsorption isotherms. These models typically assume geometrically
uniform pores and from that a theoretical isotherm may be calculated for a given pore width. Unfortunately, many naturally occurring, or synthetically produced materials do not have
a uniform pore system. These geometrically heterogeneous materials also exhibit significant isotherm hysteresis, and this often leads to an erroneous or questionable calculation of
the pore size and area distribution. In this work, we use both the adsorption and desorption branches of the isotherm to calculate the size distribution of pore throats and cavities

The Particle Size Paradox
Lily Zu, Ph.D. Product Manager, 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
- Lily Zu, Product Manager, 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
