Quantachrome is a renowned innovator of ideas for today's porous materials needs. For over 40 years, Quantachrome’s scientists have revolutionized measurement techniques and designed instrumentation to enable the accurate, precise, and reliable characterization of powdered and porous materials:

  • Gas Sorption Isotherms
  • Surface Area Measurement
  • Pore Size Distribution
  • Chemisorption Studies
  • Water sorption
  • Mercury Porosimetry
  • True Solid Density
  • Tapped Density
  • Zeta Potential

These properties are essential qualities of battery and fuel cell materials, heterogeneous catalysts, pharmaceuticals, ceramics, carbons, zeolites, advanced mesoporous and microporous materials, pigments and foodstuffs, indeed any solid whose performance relies on some interaction with its surroundings through its surface. Quantachrome offers a wide range of fully automated gas, vapor and water sorption analyzers, gas displacement pycnometers, flow chemisorption analyzers and intrusion porosimeters suitable for both research and development, and industrial quality control.

Quantachrome is also recognized as an excellent resource for authoritative analysis of your samples in our fully equipped state-of-the-art particle characterization laboratory.
