Below you can find a brief description of the term.
Acronym of: Transmission Electron Microscopy
Description:Analytical method utilised extensively in the physical and biological sciences. A beam of electrons is transmitted through a specimen to form an image. Can be used for direct imaging of nanoparticles and nanopaerticle size distribution analysis.
Acronym of: Scanning Electron Microscopy
Description:Analytical method involving that produces images of a sample via the scanning of the surface of a sample with a focussed beam of electrons. Provides topographical information and composition of the sample.
Acronym of: X-ray photoelectron Spectroscopy
Description:Quantitative spectroscopic technique for identification of the elemental composition of a material. Based on the photoelectric effect via sample irradiation with X-rays.
Acronym of: X-ray diffraction
Description:Referring to the scattering of X-rays from structures that have long-range order (e.g. crystalline solids).
Acronym of: Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy
Description:Analytical technique utilised in the elemental analysis or chemical characterization of a sample. Based on the interaction of X-rays with the sample.
Acronym of:Brunauer–Emmett–Teller.
Description:Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) theory forms the basis of an analytical technique to measure the specific surface area of a material.
Acronym of:Dynamic Light Scattering.
Description:A technique that can be used to determine the size distribution of particles in suspension or polymers in solution.
8Zeta potential
Description:Zeta potential is a parameter that measures the electrochemical equilibrium at the particle-liquid interface.
Description:pH of a solution is a quantitative measure of its acidity or basicity.
Acronym of:ultraviolet–visible
Description:Ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy is used to obtain the absorbance spectra of a compound in solution or as a solid.
