Laboratory analysis and characterization of a powder

Your needs : to reliably characterize the physicochemical properties of your powders

A powder is a mix of heterogenous solid particles which interact with each other in various ways (ex. Van der Waals interactions) while being dispersed in a continuous gas phase.

Which physicochemical properties are used to characterize a powder?


This can be determined using the XRD technique (X-Ray Diffraction).

Specific surface

This can be determined using the BET technique which measures the powder’s porosity.


This can be determined using the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) technique.

Chemical composition

Depending on the nature of the powder, this can be determined using different separative techniques such as GC-MS and LC-MS/MS or using other techniques such as ICP-AES or ICP-MS…


Particle Size Distribution can be determined using granulometric techniques such as Laser Granulometry or DCS…
