(130g) In Situ Observation of Nucleation, Growth and Aggregation in Flame Made Nanoparticles
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 13, 2006 - 5:21pm to 5:42pm
Experimental investigations using in situ small-angle x-ray scattering have opened a new window into understanding of the nature of nanoparticle growth in aerosols. Recent results concerning nano-particle nucleation, growth and aggregation in pyrolytic synthesis will be discussed. Application of a new modeling approach to understanding branching in aggregates will be highlighted.
