Particles, microparticles and colloids
Particles, microparticles and colloids play an important role in the transfer of matter and micropollutants in the different compartment of the environment, mostly in water.
During the last decade, they have been intensively studied thanks to solutions/suspensions analytical techniques. These researches gave rise to bulk information.
Recently (last 5-10 years), attention has been given to the properties of these entities at the scale of the particle.
The most adapted technique for such detail information is nowadays microscopy.
In the Particle Lab, both bulk and microscopic techniques are available in order to fully characterize particles.
