Polymer nanotechnology

Research activities

  • Polymer characterizations
  • Polymer processing ( thermo-centrifugal field, electro-spinning, spinning, self assembling, Dr. Blade)
  • Polymer based nanocomposites/nanoparticles
  • PEM-membranes
  • Nanotubes-functionalizing
Nano- Zeta sizer
  • Zeta potential measurement, 5nm – 10µm
  • Particle size analysis range, 0.6nm – 6µm
  • Molecular weight range, 1000 – 2×107 Da
    Polymer nanotechnology
    Automated titration and sample preparation
    While zeta potential alone is often used to make comparisons between materials and formulations, measuring zeta potential as a function of pH, conductivity and other parameters provides much greater insight into the processes involved in disperse systems
