28-11-2012: Dr Kikuo Okuyama ofthe Department of Chemical Engineering at the Graduate School of Engineering, Hiroshima University in Japan, was the first customer to take delivery of a Zetasizer Nano ZSP from Malvern Instruments.

In Dr Okuyama’s work the objective is to find alternative materials for rare earths and to develop rare earth-free functional materials. This involves research into the composition and structure of functional fine particles and will use the Zetasizer Nano ZSP in the evaluation of nano particle size, dispersion and surface chemistry.

“The Zetasizer Nano ZSP will be used for the evaluation of nano particle size, dispersion and surface chemistry.  Size and zeta potential will be measured when particles are produced and the data will be used to confirm the effect of changes in the chemistry of particles,” explained Dr Okuyama. “Our main objective is to find alternative materials for rare earths and to develop rare earth-free functional materials for use in applications such as high performance motors, white LED, battery and photocatalyst materials.”

    The Trap Snaps Shut

    The Venus flytrap is a carnivorous plant luring insect prey with drops of liquid. The trap snaps shut like a steel jaw when an insect touches one of the very fine hairs within. The prey is caught – digestion begins. Minoru Ueda and a research team from the Universities of Tohoku, Hirosaki, ... more

    How do your crystals grow?

    Because one of the main bottlenecks in determining the structure of protein molecules is producing good isolated single crystals, improved crystallization techniques would be useful in a wide range of genomics and pharmaceutical research.
