Topics to be discussed:
Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) readily lends itself as a technique to measure the surface energies of powders since it does not involve liquid wetting and therefore does not require compression of the particles. The SMS iGC SEA instrument also allows for the first time the measurement of surface energies as a function of humidity.
Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS)is a valued tool for the study of compound stability and surface sorption effects of water and organic vapors. The DVS Instrument was developed as a response to the researcher’s need for fast and effective analytical methods to determine a material’s moisture content and related sorption isotherms. Before the invention of the DVS, water sorption isotherms were obtained from a process known as the “Jar Method” or desiccator method. It was a slow and tedious process that took weeks, if not months, to achieve results.
About the Speaker
Dr Daryl Williams the inventor of the Dynamic Vapor Sorption method has published over 70 papers and is the mind behind the Surface Energy Analyzer, the only instrument that measure surface energy using inverse gas chromatography principle. His research interests include the surface and bulk characterization of complex organic solids, including especially bio-pharmaceutics, as well as their manufacture using spray drying, crystallization, freeze drying, milling and granulation and has been sponsored by major industrial companies and government organizations including EPSRC, BBSRC, Pfizer, Astra-Zeneca, Kellogg’s, Unilever, P&G, Avecia and GSK.
