This is the fifth edition of the highly successful work first published in 1968, comprising two definitive volumes on particle characterisation. The first volume is devoted to sampling and particle size measurement, while surface area and pore size determination are reviewed in volume 2. Particle size and characterisation are central to understanding powder properties and behaviour. This book describes numerous potential measuring devices, how they operate and their advantages and disadvantages. It comprise a fully comprehensive treatise on the wide range of available equipment with an extensive literature survey, and a list of manufacturers and suppliers. The author's blend of academic and industrial experience results in a readable technical book with information on how to analyse, present, and extract useful information from data. This is an essential reference book for both industrial and academic research workers in a variety of areas including: pharmaceuticals, food science, pollution analysis and control, electronic materials, agricultural products, polymers, pigments and chemicals.

Volume 1: Permeametry and gas diffusion. Surface area determination by gas adsorption. Determination of pore size distribution by gas adsorption. Pore size determination by mercury porosimetry. Other methods for determining surface area. Volume 2: Powder sampling. Data presentation and interpretation. Particle size by image analysis. Particle size analysis by sieving. Fluid classification. Interaction between fluids and particles. Sedimentation theory. Sedimentation methods of particle size measurement. Stream scanning methods of particle size measurement. Field scanning methods of particle size measurement. Industrial applications of particle size measurement. Appendix: Manufacturers and suppliers. Author index. Subject index.
