Pulp Non-Fiction: Absolute Macromolecular and Nanoparticle Characterization of Lignocellulosic Materials
Presented Live: October 1, 2014
Successful analysis of lignocellulosic biomass and biomass derivatives by conventional physico-chemical techniques can prove a formidable task. A suite of tools based on static multi-angle light scattering (MALS) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) for absolute determination of molar mass, size and conformation successfully addresses the characterization of these challenging macromolecular solutions and nanoparticle dispersions. The webinar will present a brief introduction to MALS, DLS and ancillary technologies, as well as case studies that demonstrate the application of light scattering and related experimental techniques to overcome obstacles commonly encountered with difficult-to-analyze samples such as lignins and nanocrystalline cellulose.
