Paper Abstract

In this work we present an application of the forward-angle light scattering (FAST) for the flocculation point determination in asphaltene-toluene solutions. This technique allows to obtain an accurate and precise flocculation point determination compare to those obtained by traditional techniques. Estimations of flock dimensions based in the FAST measurements are presented.
