Program at a Glance:

Gas-phase synthesis allows the production of a large variety of complex nanoparticles for various applications and is especially suited for scaling-up, already proven by several industrial processes. In this two-day international symposium at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE, Germany) relevant scalable nanoparticle synthesis processes such as plasma synthesis and flame synthesis are presented, with an emphasis on recent innovations, scaling-up strategies, and applications. Additional topics are measurement, modeling, and diagnostics as well as functionalization and deposition technology. Also, the sustainability of the processes and materials will be discussed.

This symposium is organized within the frame of the EU FP7 project BUONAPART-E Better Upscaling & Optimization of Nanoparticle and Nanostructure Production by Means of Electrical Discharges and the DFG research unit 2284 Model-based scalable gas-phase synthesis of complex nanoparticles.
