Synthesis and Applications of Engineered Structured Particulates

Tomassone, M. S., Rutgers University

As the size of particles becomes smaller and smaller, down to the nano-scale, the particle properties at the particle scale can change drastically and significantly affect the bulk or composite particle properties, resulting in unique added value to the particulate materials. Such value-added particles are called Engineered Particles. This session invites abstracts of work involving engineered particles that consist of functional structuring of the nano and sub-micron particles to achieve desired final properties in a composite particle such that they have improved characteristics such as dispersability, flowability, wettability, sinterability, size uniformity, proper morphology, reduced tendency for segregation, as well as having tailored electrical, electro-magnetic, optical, thermal or other properties. The engineered particles can be of various types, for example: (1) coated particles that have a layered structure, (2) synthesized nano and sub-micron particles with controlled size or morphology, and (3) composite particles with a specific ordered structure consisting of nano and larger particles. In most such cases, the emphasis is on a more effective utilization of the unique properties of nano-structured particulate systems that have potential applications in a variety of industries including pharmaceuticals, defense, electronics, food, cosmetics, ceramics and specialty chemicals. Papers that discuss formation as well as unique applications are strongly encouraged.



Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
