Differential thermal effects of immersion of silica in water and decane vs time

An important characteristic of highly disperse materials is the ability to interact with water that allows one to distinguish hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces. The interaction with water plays an important role in many industrial processes, forecasting physical and chemical effects and in the final performance characteristics of the materials. For films and flat surfaces, the hydrophobicity is determined by  the water contact angle, but for powders a method of measurement of heats of immersion in polar and nonpolar liquids (e.g.

Deconvolution of the IR spectrum of fumed alumina/silica/titania in the range of asymmetric Si-O stretching vibrations

Practically all organic and inorganic compounds have characteristic bands in infrared (IR) spectra, e.g. silica has a narrow band of free silanols.

High vacuum weighing adsorption facility with a McBain–Bark quartz scale

Investigations of adsorption of vapors and gases of various nature and structures allow  a deep insight into not only textural characteristics, but also other important properties of disperse and porous materials and their surfaces, hydrophilic or hydrophobic, acidic or basic, or mosaic.

This technique is most appropriate to determine the structural and adsorption characteristics of disperse or porous materials which are stable upon cooling to temperature of liquid nitrogen.
