Gas-Phase Nanoparticle Synthesis - I


Wegner, K., Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)


Akhtar, K. M., Millennium Chemicals Inc.

This session focuses on gas phase routes for fine particle synthesis. Reports on the latest advances on nanoparticle manufacture by aerosol processes such as flame, plasma, or evaporation-condensation are particularly welcome. Integrated processes of gas-phase nanoparticle production, manipulation and deposition, for example film coatings, will also be covered. The effect of synthesis conditions on particle size distribution, chemical and crystal phase composition, purity, structure and shape is the emphasis of this session. Ideally, the connection between synthesis conditions, particle characteristics and their functionality in specific applications (e.g., catalytic, electronic and structural) is to be discussed. Discussion on the potential for scale up of the production process and the challenges involved therein is also sought.



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