RSC – NPL Symposium

–  24 April 2018
Date: 24 April 2018
Time: 08:29

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) are organising a Symposium on "Nanoparticle concentration – critical needs and state-of-the-art measurement" on 2th April 2018 in London, UK.

This event aims to bring together academics, measurement experts, instrument manufacturers, nanomaterials producers and industries interested in their use and applications to:

  • Discuss the state-of-the-art of nanoparticle analysis with focus on nanoparticle number concentration.

  • Present new methods to measure absolute nanoparticle concentration with low uncertainty, alongside the capabilities of a range of commercially available instrumentation.

  • Identify needs and potential pathways to address current limitations in methods, reference materials and protocols.

  • Discuss industrial requirements in the framework of product development, regulatory requirements and the development of standards.

The outputs of the Symposium will be used as input to a variety of international efforts related to measurements of nanomaterials, including national standards organisations, VAMAS and ISO Technical Committees on Nanotechnology.

This Symposium will be followed on 25th April by an Open Day, at the same location, dedicated to the outcomes of the European project Innanopart – Metrology for Innovative Nanoparticle – of the European Metrology Programme for Research and Innovation (EMPIR). Themes that will be presented and discussed are measurements of nanoparticle concentration, agglomeration and surface chemistry. Attendees are invited to attend this event free of charge.

This meeting is now open for papers. Visit the event webpage for more information.
