Special Symposium

This special symposium focuses on the recent advancements in both dry and wet nano particle synthesis, integration, distribution and application. Special interest is also placed on characterization techniques for both particulates and for polymer nano particles.

This symposium is cross-listed with numerous symposium included the obvious overlaps with Polymer Nanotechnology. Polymer Nanotechnology is the most rapidly growing sections of the Nanotech Conference program. Process and characterization advancements are leading to new functionality and application of polymer nanoparticles.

Regarding dry nanoparticulates, through evolutionary research, industry today uses dry technology for manufacture of carbon blacks and simple oxides. It is practically impossible to use these production units for synthesis of functional inorganic nanoparticles without going through the same costly and time-consuming cycle. However, recent major breakthroughs in academia have placed dry synthesis of nanoparticles on a firm scientific basis, allowing synthesis of these materials in appreciable volumes and at competitive prices. This has created renewed interest in dry processes and products.

This symposium focuses on these breakthroughs, leading to integrated process development for final product performance rather than particle characteristics. Special emphasis is placed on the degree of particle agglomeration, and its control, as well as on nanoparticles with designed morphology and layered composition.

Topics & Application Areas

Online abstract submissions are now being accepted. Proposed topics include, but are not be limited to:

  • Dry Synthesis - gas phase, aerosols, reactors
  • Wet Synthesis - sol-gel, emulsions
  • Nanoparticle characterization
  • Particle stability - understanding and control of stability
  • Stimuli-sensitive particles and assemblies
  • Nanoparticle-protein interactions
  • Mechanical applications
  • Thermal and fire applications
  • Barrier applications
  • Electrical, magnetic and optical applications
  • Polymer nanocomposite applications
  • Applications in personal care products and foods
  • Diagnostics and Imaging
  • Health Impacts & Applications
  • Other

This symposium will be coordinated with the Nanoparticles in Soft Materials: Colloids symposium, and the Composites symposium with joint sessions covering several of the topic areas.
