Particle Sizing

Every modern method to obtain a particle-size distribution is reviewed. These include sizing by flow, by detection of single particles, by light scattering, by acoustic signals, by adsorption, and by indirect methods. The various techniques are compared with respect to optimum ranges and reliability of results. A list of instrument makers is included.

Key Words: centrifugation, Coulter counter, electroacoustics, equivalent spherical diameter, electron microscope, elutriation, filtration, gas adsorption, hydrodynamic chromatography, light scattering, particle size, size distributions, quasi-elastic light scattering, sieving, ultramicroscopy
