Bridging the gap in nanomaterials upscaling

by Dr Marco Bersani ( Particular Materials Srl )




The upscaling in nanomaterials production represents the main bottleneck for the successful transfer of lab-scale results to industrial products and processes. To this day, scalable synthetic techniques force the acceptance of compromises in terms of quality or processability that eventually limit or slow down the penetration of nano-based solutions in industry. Here we present a green and flexible process that has enabled the upscaled production of over 85 different compounds including oxides, metals, sulfides, MOFs, based on a continuous flow technology with supercritical water. Its application has allowed for the industrialization of  new materials alongside unprecedented experimental approaches in fundamental studies.
