Solutions & Molecules

In chemistry, a solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. In such a mixture, a solute is a substance dissolved in another substance, known as a solvent. The solution more or less takes on the characteristics of the solvent including its phase, and the solvent is commonly the major fraction of the mixture. A molecule is an electrically neutral group of two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds.

Our instruments can measure the following properties of solutions and molecules:

  • Hydrodynamic diameter
  • Molecular weight
  • Radius of gyration
  • Conformation
  • Branching
  • Viscosity
  • Refractive index
  • Reaction enthalpy
  • Color (solution)
