Application Note: Overcoming the Challenges of Nanoparticle Characterization with a Light Scattering Toolkit
26 January 2016
This application note describes the most useful analytical techniques for the characterisation of nanoparticles. The article shows how multi-angle, dynamic and electrophoretic light scattering (MALS, DLS, ELS) can aid determination of size and size distributions, while complementary techniques such as Field Flow Fractionation (FFF) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) can increase scope of detection and analysis. The versatile suit of techniques offered by Wyatt Technology instruments are essential to scientists working in nanoparticle characterisation.
