In the course Porosity and Surface Area Characterization the necessity, basic principles and definitions of porosity, density, pore size distributions and specific surface area of solid materials are discussed. In addition, also the characterization of different types of active sites (e.g. catalysts) and their surface area are dealt with. Pros and cons of the techniques are highlighted and common pitfalls in porosity and surface area characterization are interactively discussed. Accuracy, quality and quality control are separate topics that are covered together with selection of appropriate measurement techniques. The fully-equipped laboratory in the same premises allows a perfect interaction between theory and practice.
You are an operator, analyst, lab manager or technologist and are directly involved and/or interested in the characterization of particles. The course content is tailored to post-bachelor (Post-HBO) level, however the combination of theory and practical examples makes the course suitable for both experienced analysts at vocational level (MBO) or VAPRO-C as well as participants with academic background.

Delft Solids Solutions
Delft Solids Solutions is a privately-held contract research organization working on research and characterization of solid materials. Topics include, but are not limited to, primary physical properties as porosity, pore volume, pore size, surface area, particle size, density of powders and granules. We also investigate related characteristics such ...
