  • New collaboration

    between Formulaction and SDTech Nano

    We constantly work with industrial and academia partners to provide adapted solutions that answer targeted problems. We have recently started collaborating with SDTech Nano
    This new technological platform specialises in fabrication, characterization and process development of nanopowders and nanosuspensions. 
    Together with SDTech Nano we focus on studying the impact of  nanoparticle suspensions grinding on particle size and physical stability.

Analysis of Concentrated Graphene Dispersions

sep 17 2018

Graphene is a unique material with electromechanical properties which have sparked a revolution in the field of materials science. Although allotropic with carbon, graphene exhibits behavior between that of a metal and a non-metal. It can be described as a semiconductor like silicon, although with vastly improved electrical conductivity. This is because graphene is comprised of a single sheet of carbon-carbon bonds arranged in a two-dimensional lattice, representing a longer mean free path for electrons to travel through. Alongside these outstanding electrical properties, graphene is incredibly strong, lightweight, and formable – but these properties are difficult to reproduce.

Stability Tests for Electronic Applications

sep 11 2018

The stability of suspensions used for the electronic field is critical for guaranteeing the level of quality associated with high-technology end-products. For example, ultra-high definition displays rely on unique optical coatings and surface engineering of thin film structures to generate images of high-quality. Chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) uses slurries to polish the surfaces of semiconducting materials. The functionalities of fuel cells and batteries are improved with solution-processed nanoparticle coatings. There are myriad examples of the use of suspensions in established and cutting-edge electronic applications. Stability tests of suspensions can ensure that electronic devices in commercial and industrial spaces are fit for requirement.

Particle Size Analysis through Static Multiple eLight Scattering

jul 19 2018

Particle size analysis is critical for characterizing the physiochemical properties of heterogenous solutions such as emulsions. It is important to not only measure the size of dispersed media (solid particles, droplets, nanobubbles) but also monitor their evolution. Thus, the measurement is best to be done in the native form, without dilution or mechanical stress to determine the accurate stability and ageing properties.
