XRD at controlled temperature and humidity: In situ study of (de-)hydration processes

PANalytical's PIXcel X-ray detector

The amount of absorbed/desorbed water directly influences properties of many materials (clays, zeolites, cement, sorbents, pharmaceuticals, etc.), changing the phase composition and/or structure of the phases. In situ X-ray diffraction (XRD) at variable temperatures (T) and relative humidities (RH) is the most comprehensive tool to study these changes.
In this webinar the experimental setups for in situ XRD at variable temperature and relative humidity on PANalytical’s diffractometers will be discussed. A number of application examples featuring T-RH induced phase transformation in different types of materials (pharmaceuticals, clays, clinker) will be shown.

Duration: 45 minutes

Panelist: Olga Narygina studied Physics at the Ural State University (Russia). After completing her master thesis on high-pressure high-temperature study of carbon nanotubes Olga moved to Bayerisches Geoinstitut, University of Bayreuth (Germany) to obtain her PhD degree working on high-pressure high-temperature research of Fe-containing silicates and alloys. This was followed by a post-doc position at the University of Edinburgh (The United Kingdom), where Olga carried on with the material property research at extreme pressure-temperature conditions with the focus on the structural properties of alkali metals. In 2011 Olga joined PANalytical as an application specialist XRD, in Almelo (the Netherlands).
