Size distributions may change over time

Starter size distribution:


More on characterization

Processes in which volume is conserved

Coagulation, communition or breakup, restructuring


More on characterization

Processes in which volume not conserved

Condensation, evaporation, nucleation, sedimentation,



More on characterization

Chemical composition not always same

  • Varying degrees of chemical homogenaity in particle mixtures

  • Particles all of one chemical species (ie salt granules) – chemically homogeneous

  • Particles are all of one chemical species, but the particles are mixed – externally mixed

  • Particles are of two or more chemical components, but composition of each particle is same – internally mixed

  • Individual particles have different compositions


More on characterization

Chemical composition may vary with size

Pharmaceutical powders for inhalation - want small drug particles mixed with and loosely bound to larger inert particles

Emissions from incinerators – some high volatility compounds evaporate in high temperature zone and nucleate downstream forming ultrafine high surface area particles

More examples


More on characterization

How to measure chemical composition?

Many techniques – survey of analytical chemistry

Some need large sample of material, so need to take average over whole size distribution, and/or time

Some need extremely small amounts of material so representative sampling is crucial

Some can tell you composition on-line or nearly on-line

Some require off-line analysis
