The Q-Sense QCM-D technology is a novel real-time in-situ method for detergent formulation screening during the R&D phase of new detergents.
Critical Micelle Concentration
Detergents use surfactants to draw organic matter away from substrates. The operations of the surfactants can be observed from the dynamics of the surfactant movement to determining suitable concentrations.
Wetting of a liquid on a solid surface depends on the solid surface properties as well as the liquid used. By manipulating the properties of surfaces the function or performance of a solid surface or material can be optimized for the purpose of interest.
