Measuring the particle size of small volume nanoparticles samples using the Mastersizer 3000 and Hydro SV

Nanoparticles can be difficult to produce, and are often synthesized in small quantities and dispersed in expensive solvents. The Hydro SV is allows us to measure the particle size distribution samples dispersed in 6-7ml of dispersant, and is therefore ideally suited to the measurement of nanoparticles by laser diffraction. This application note discusses the measurement of two nano-sized pigment samples using the Mastersizer 3000 and Hydro SV, highlighting the capability of the technique in resolving small differences in the particle size of the samples.
