Pharmaceutical Powder X-ray Diffraction Symposium

23 May 2016  Creating a forum for the exchange of knowledge and cutting-edge ideas among those interested in the combined fields of XRD and pharmaceutical sciences. Sponsored by the International Centre for Diffraction Data. Dr. Detlef Beckers - Lead Scientist at PANalytical Almelo, the Netherlands, is chairing "New Frontiers in XRD for Pharmaceutical R&D" segment. His speaking engagements include the titles "Humidity induced phase transitions in Hewlysozymicrocrystalline powder diffraction" & "X-ray scattering on nano crystalline and amorphous materials". Anasuya Adibhatla - XRD Applications Specialist at PANalytical the Americas, will present "Quantification of multiple amorphous phases". Join us in Florida at the the Sanibel Harbour Marriott and discuss your analytical challenges with our resident experts.

Analysis of the elemental composition of nanomaterials by X-ray fluorescence

17 April 2015  In this introductory webinar we will discuss the importance of controlling the elemental composition of nanomaterials and demonstrate how X-ray fluorescence (XRF) can easily be used for a quick (semi-quantitative) screening as well as for an accurate quantification of major and minor elements that are present in a sample. XRF has the advantage of being a non-destructive technique that can determine elemental compositions from small (tens of milligrams) as well as large (several grams) sample amounts. It can be applied to virtually all forms of materials, such as nanopowders, liquid nanoparticle dispersions and solid nanocomposites and yields representative data. The webinar targets nanomaterial researchers in academia and industry, as well as process and quality control managers of industrial nanomaterial producers.
