The understanding and control of particle charge is gaining importance in many areas.  Every particle suspended In a solution has a surface charge which has an important influence on dispersion and suspension stability.  This charge can be manipulated with solution chemistry and particle composition.  The ability to measure this charge (particularly though titration) is paramount to understanding and ultimately controlling the behavior of the suspension.
