Crystals reveal the answer: Detecting drugs with a quartz crystal microbalance Balancing in the heat A novel type of high temperature quartz crystal disc could make the perfect detector for small, portable gas chromatography (GC) systems, say US researchers. Such
Quartz Crystal Microbalance – QCM – measures a mass per unit area
Article now available at Springer by A. Robert Hillman Abstract In its simplest manifestation, the electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) is a relatively new device for executing a classical technique, electrogravimetry. The advantages it brought were in situ applicability
EQCM Investigations This Application Note is intended to provide the reader with a general framework for characterization of an electroactive polymer film. Electropolymerization is a convenient way to control film growth either through repeated cycling, potential steps, or current steps.
The Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) is an exciting tool for the electrochemist. With it, the researcher can now follow not only the current that flows, but the weight changes of the electrode, too! This is a valuable tool when studying
This tutorial provides an introduction to the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), which is an instrument that allows a user to monitor small mass changes on an electrode. The reader is directed to the numerous reviews1 and book chapters2 for a
