Flame-based Aerosol Synthesis of Metal Nanoparticles and Supported-Metal Nanostructures


Keywords: , , ,

Commercialization of inorganic nanomaterials is often limited by scale-up. Our group developed a unique flame- based aerosol process for scalable, continuous, and low-cost production of various nanomaterials, the High Temperature Reducing Jet (HTRJ) Reactor. Over the past decade, a wide range of inorganic nanoparticles has been produced by this process, including metal and alloy nanomaterials (Ag, Cu-Ni, Cu-Ag-Sn, etc), dense, hollow, and porous ceramic materials (Al2O3, SiO2, etc), and supported-metal nanomaterials (Ni/MgO, CrOx/SiO2, Pd/graphene, etc). Based on their specific properties, these materials have broad utility and excellent performance in energy and environmental applications, such as printed electronics, thermal insulation materials, catalysis, and sensors.
