Link Viscoelastic Behaviour and Molecular Structure with Live Raman Spectroscopy during Rheology Measurements

Add a chemical perspective to your rheological analysis with in situ Raman spectroscopy inside the rheometer. This will allow you to track and confirm expected changes in the chemistry of your material.

By combining two powerful measurement principles, you can:

  • Observe viscoelastic behaviour and chemical changes simultaneously (e.g., curing processes, melting, crystallization, polymerization, cross-linking)
  • Link macroscopic mechanical behaviour with microscopic chemical structure
  • Gain insights into underlying mechanisms and reaction kinetics
  • Improve material models and optimise the composition
  • Benefit from the modular setup and unmatched ease of use.

Combining Rheology and Raman Spectroscopy Shear Rate Effects

Do you need a way to track shear-rate-dependent influences on molecules and supramolecular structures in real-time? The combination of Raman spectroscopy with a rheological setup offers unique advantages allowing the possibility to probe shear rate effects along with temperature effects on the sample.  Download the application report here.

About Anton Paar

Founded in 1922 in Graz (Austria), Anton Paar is the world market leader in the measurement of density and concentration, the determination of dissolved carbon dioxide, and the fields of rheometry and viscometry. Anton Paar’s customers include most of the major beer and soft drink manufacturers worldwide, companies active in the food, chemicals, petroleum, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as leading academic groups.

For many decades, Anton Paar has combined precise mechanical production with the latest achievements in the fields of research and development. In recent years, the Anton Paar GmbH has invested up to 20 % of its annual turnover in research and development. The company offers analytical solutions that are produced within its nine producing sites (in Europe and the USA). Additionally, the company has created a soccer simulator: in the “skills.lab”, professionals and amateurs can perfect their skills under real conditions.

The Anton Paar Group operates in more than 110 countries and has 35 sales subsidiaries and 11 producing firms in Europe and the USA. More than 4,400 employees in a worldwide network spanning research and development, production, sales, and support are responsible for the quality, reliability, and service of products made by Anton Paar. Since 2003, the Charitable Santner Foundation has been the owner of Anton Paar. It is dedicated exclusively and directly to charitable purposes. In 2022, the company generated net sales revenue of 545.6 million euros.
