Abstract:This paper presents an overview of recent basic research on flame aerosol reactors for the gasphase synthesis of nanoparticles. Emphasis is placed on flame reactor technology as it is widely used in industry for the large-scale manufacture of oxide and carbon nanoparticles. The importance of reactant gas mixing, additives and external electric fields in flame technology is highlighted for the control of product particle properties by affecting the chemistry, temperature and collision histories. Laser-induced f… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
