Workshop On Micro-/ Nanoparticles Fabrication and Characterisation

Event Date : 30/09/2019
Event Time : 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Materials : Download PDF

Micro-/Nanoparticles have a broad spectrum of advanced applications in healthcare, biomedical, agricultural, food, environment and electronics sectors. Numerous nanoparticles fabrication techniques are employed to produce particles of desirable shape and size that cater for various applications. In line with the National Nanotechnology Initiatives (NNI) which advocates the growth of technology and human capital, this workshop is open to all participants (postgraduate students, faculty/researchers, industrial chemist/researchers, statutory body research officers) who wish to gain hands-on experience, through which all participants will be guided in using an established procedure to generate polymeric micro-/nanoparticles. This will be followed by particle characterisation and discussions.


  • To gain insight into the importance of the chemistry and practices of micro-/nanoparticles in areas of pharmaceutical and chemical related applications
  • To acquire a skill in preparation of micro-/nanoparticles in a laboratory setting
  • To measure average particle size and size distribution, and zeta potential using dynamic light scattering system (DLS)
