Measurement of Polymer Multilayer Deposition using QCM-I

The electrostatically driven adsorption of polymer and nano-particle multilayers is a well-established method for the physical and chemical transformation of surfaces to produce highly tailored and often “smart”, environmentally sensitive interfaces. The deposition process can be sensitively monitored using QCM-I, which provides information on the hydrated mass of the multilayer as well as its physical […]

Pump Flow Control with Manual Sample Introduction It is recommended that samples are introduced to the QCM-I flow-cells using a pump to control the flow. In the simplest setup, shown in figure 1, a peristaltic pump* is used to suck buffer directly from a beaker or other container. Sample is introduced to the flow-cell by […]
