#159 - Modeling and Scaleup of Nanoparticle Processes (03D02)
We invite papers to be submitted to this session which address the topics of modeling across the length scales from molecular to processing equipment dimensions. Experimental demonstrations of scaleup phenomena, particularly when used to validate, substantiate or develop modeling or scaling theory or laws, will also be welcomed. Reports of successful scaleup to an industrial application level, making use of modeling results, are of particular interest. Papers may be concerned with critical components of nanoscale processes e.g. reaction, mixing, separation, and recovery.
