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.”

    Ultra-thin, all-inorganic molecular nanowires successfully compounded

    Nanowires are wired-shaped materials with diameters that are tens of nanometers or less. There are many types of nanowires, including semiconducting composite nanowires, metal oxide composite nanowires, and organic polymer nanowires, and they are typically used in functional materials and d ... more

    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
