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.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Dry Synthesis: Gas Phase, Aerosols, Reactors
  • Wet Synthesis: Sol-Gel, Emulsions
  • Nanoparticle Characterization
  • Quantum Dots: Synthesis, Characterization & Applications
  • Biomedical Applications
  • Electrical, Magnetic, Optical Applications
  • Nanocomposites
  • Novel Applications
