Materials Synthesis and Modification > Separation Techniques


Centrifuges provide a simple way to separate materials that are suspended in a liquid.

By spinning samples at high speeds, materials with different densities are separated from one another by centrifugal forces.

This technique is often used in biological applications for, say, separating the constituent...
