Add event to calendar vCal

Speaker: Dr Laura Torrente Murciano, Dept of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge

In this industry facing seminar, Dr Torrente will talk about her group’s new technology for the large-scale production of nanoparticles and structured materials. The Process Integration Group are designing novel microdevices for the flow synthesis of such materials guided by computer fluid dynamic simulations. Their approach presents an innovative way of tuning the size of the particles and their chemical composition by exploiting the advantages offered by laminar flow systems.

The potential industrial applications range from catalysis to bio-imaging, energy materials, solar cells, etc.
