Nanoparticle thin films are finding applications in areas where functional coatings are needed. Dip coating offers one of the simplest methods to coat the substrate with nanoparticles.
Nanoparticle suspensions are complex systems, and understanding their interaction with their environment requires characterization of a broad range of physicochemical properties. Here we present an overview of the key parameters that can be used to profile nanoparticle suspensions.
This blog explains the difference between surface and interfacial tension.
Polymers and polyelectrolytes of various conformations are used in many applications where there is a need to tailor the interfacial properties to promote a certain interaction with the surrounding environment. Here we show how polymer layer crosslinking and collapse can be characterized.
This blog post discusses the nanoparticle interaction in biological environment.
