A high-throughput method for determining the stability of pigment dispersions

James Merrington, Philip Hodge, Stephen Yeates

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    An approach for the high-throughput preparation and characterisation of aqueous pigment dispersions is described and evaluated. The use of ultrasonication as a rapid technique for dispersing pigments using polymeric dispersants was developed. The results are comparable to those obtained using time-intensive conventional high-energy ball mill processing. The quality of the pigment dispersion was evaluated in a high-throughput fashion using digital image analysis and the results correlated with particle sizes, determined by photo-correlation spectroscopy. © 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
