Rheonaut Module enables new molecular rheology solutions

28 June 2013

Material engineers, scientists and chemists who use rheometry to study flow properties of materials can now analyze the molecular structure of rapidly changing materials such as UV-curing and superglue materials.

Thermo Fisher Scientific now offers a Mercury telluride cadmium (MTC) infrared detector for the popular Rheonaut Module, the world’s first ready-to-use molecular rheology solution.

The Rheonaut module pairs rheological analysis from the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS rheometer with infrared spectroscopy, enabling users to simultaneously collect and analyze spectroscopic and rheological information from the same sample. Available on infrared spectrometers for many years, the MTC detector offers four to five times faster spectra collection and a 10 to 100 fold improvement in signal-to-noise ratio compared to deuterated triglycine sulfate detectors (DTGS), also available for the Rheonaut module.

Adding a MTC detector to the Rheonaut module for the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS rheometer, coupled with a Thermo Scientific infrared spectrometer, offers a powerful molecular rheology solution for analyzing molecular interactions and conformational changes in rapidly evolving materials.
