This session invites abstracts of work involving engineered particles that consist of functional structuring of the nano and sub-micron particles to achieve desired physiochemical properties such that they have improved characteristics for specific applications. The engineered particles can be of various types, for example: (1) coated particles that have a layered structure or design surface functionality, (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, biomedical, 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.
