Chemicals Application Notes — Precision in Chemical Analysis

2024-06-03Application Note

Precisely understanding and behavior of chemical materials is fundamental to developing innovative products, optimizing processes, and ensuring consistent quality. However, achieving this precision in chemical analysis can be challenging, as selecting and effectively utilizing the appropriate analytical techniques for specific chemical samples is crucial.


For example, zeta potential, which depends on the chemical composition and pH of the medium, is an important parameter for assessing stability. Our BeNano series utilizes Phase Analysis Light Scattering (PALS), a more sensitive technique capable of accurately measuring zeta potential even in samples with low electrophoretic mobility. Moreover, by pairing the BeNano series with the BAT-1 autotitrator, researchers can precisely determine the zeta potential of samples at different pH levels.


Beyond PALS and Electrophoretic Light Scattering (ELS) for zeta potential, our BeNano series empowers chemists to effectively measure particle size and molecular weight using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) and Static Light Scattering (SLS).
