Abstract or Summary
  • The cross over from batch nanoparticle synthesis to continuous synthesis processes is crucial to the commercialization of these materials. This project reports comparative studies of batch and continuous synthese of copper nanoparticles by the polyol method. Continuous synthesis of copper nanoparticles was done utilizing a stainless steel micro-mixer that yielded results comparable to batch synthesis. Characterization of copper nanoparticles was done using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA). Continuous synthesis yielded 15% higher conversion of copper ions to copper nanoparticles than batch synthesis.
