Fifth Training School
Potsdam (DE), Jan 17-19, 2017
Characterization of nanocellulose
The Training School was hosted by Fraunhofer IAP. The aim of the fifth training school was to generate knowledge and practice on characterization of materials based on nanocellulose. The participants learned more about different characterization methods, the application possibilities, advantages/disadvantages, detection limit, and sample preparation for the different methods.
The first day offered lectures about different possibilities for material characterization of small particles. The topic of the second day was a theoretical introduction and after that the possibility of practical working in the lab with some selected methods. The training was carried out in small groups.
Here you can download the presentations given during training school day 1 and 3.
