Interfacial Phenomena (01c)

#130 - Particle Synthesis and Stabilization (01C12)
Particles with size ranging from nanometer to micrometer (quantum dots, nanoparticles, and colloidal particles) are of great scientific interest and technological importance in electronics, optics, ceramics, pharmaceutics, and other fields. Novel synthetic methods are being developed to incorporate new electrical, optical, magnetic, and biological functionalities into these particles. Stability of particles is also a significant issue in their applications. This session focuses on these two topics. Papers are invited to submit that describe novel methodologies for synthesizing particles of various sizes and types, passivating or stabilizing particles that have been made, controlling interparticle interaction to reduce agglomeration, and similar topics.
