Development of thermal field-flow fractionation for the characterization of hybrid nanoparticles and polymers with complex architecture
Field-flow fractionation (FFF) is a family of analytical techniques designed for the separation of macromolecules and colloids on the nanometer to micron scale. The well-established theory governing FFF separations permits physiochemical properties to be calculated from measured analyte retention times. This allows FFF to be leveraged for not only separation of nanoparticles and polymers but also as a characterization tool to obtain physiochemical distributions. Thermal FFF is unique as the separation mechanism is based on the differential transport of analytes in the presence of a temperature ...
