ABE 50300 - Surface Properties And Powder Performance Of Microparticulate Systems
Credit Hours: 3.00. Material Surface Science is the study of properties that occurs at the interface of two phases. Surface phenomena needs to be addressed to understand and manipulate the behavior of particulate materials. Probing particulate surface properties at the nano- and micro-level helps to relate these to the macroscale powder performance. The main focus of this course is on the application of surface analytical techniques for assessing the physical and chemical factors that dictate particulate interactions in various food, pharmaceutical, biological, mineral, environmental (soil and water) and aerosol systems. This course will provide the student both a broad overview of the state-of-the-art analytical tools available to assess particulate surfaces and a fundamental insight into the characteristic behavior of system of particles. This course is unique because the student will learn and articulate how surface, physical, chemical and bulk properties are relevant in the performance of microparticulate systems of his/her interest.
