Join Chemistry Consultant Aidan Robertson as he introduces particle characterisation, the methodology relevant in assessing whether or not a substance is classified as a nanomaterial. 

In addition, he will highlight analytical techniques which can be used to probe other key parameters, such as composition and surface functionalisation of nanoparticles on 5 March 2019, 15:00-15:30 GMT.

The following topics will be covered:

  • A brief introduction to the changes regarding nanomaterials and REACH
  • What are the general characterisation requirements?
  • Proving a substance is a nanomaterial
  • Potential issues
  • Probing chemical composition and surface functionalisation of nanoparticles
