Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum (22)

#23 - Chemical Processing of Nanoparticulate Materials I (22000)
This session seeks oral presentations on aspects of chemical engineering (synthesis, scale-up, functionalization, assembly) of nanoparticulate materials, preferably carbon nanostructures, bio-nanomaterials, nanowires, and nanoparticles, and preferably in the 1-100 nm size range. Session I focuses on substrated-supported nanostructures, and Session II focuses on dispersed systems.
