Special Symposium

This symposium focuses on recent advancements in both dry and wet synthesis of nanoparticles, and particularly on the integration and application of innovative nanomaterials. Emphasis will be placed on the degree of hard and soft agglomeration and its control, as well as on nanoparticles with designed morphology and layered composition focusing on unique applications.

Recent breakthroughs on aerosol, combustion and reaction engineering sciences have placed dry synthesis of nanoparticles on a firm scientific basis, leading to novel functional materials in appreciable volumes at competitive prices. This has created renewed interest in dry processes and products.

Submissions are also welcome in all areas of wet synthesis including developments and applications of sol/gel and emulsion based processes and templating using soft nanostructured materials such as block copolymers or surfactants.

This symposium is coordinated with the Composite Materials, Soft Nanotech, Biosensors, Polymer Nanotechnology and Characterization symposia. Joint sessions will cover several of the topic areas.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Dry Synthesis - gas phase, aerosols, reactors
  • Wet Synthesis - sol-gel, emulsions
  • Nanoparticle characterization, fractals
  • Particle stability
  • Biomedical applications
  • Electrical, magnetic, optical applications
  • Nanoparticles in medical diagnostics & imaging
  • Polymer nanocomposites
  • Nutritional nanoparticles
  • Novel applications
  • Other
