Analyzing vapor uptake and release

- How to characterize layer swelling and collapse with QCM-D

Humidity measurements are of importance in a wide range of applications, for example pulp and paper research, drug encapsulation for storage and delivery, and moisture absorption in polymers e.g. photoresists. Here we present an analysis on how water uptake and release affects starch properties and film thickness.

In this application note you will find: Analyzing vapor uptake and release
  • Experimental setup
  • Real-time characterization and quantification of starch swelling and collapse
  • Comparison and evaluation of two different starch configurations.
