Reactive Spraying

Haipeng Li mit Lasermesstechnik

The Reactive Spraying aims to design spray processes that enable the synthesis of complex particulate materials through reactions in the gas and liquid phase. Reactive spraying plays an important role in the conversion of materials in process engineering. It includes reactions on disperse phases and the associated synthesis of new particulate products.

An important representative of these process technologies is flame spray pyrolysis (FSP), in which reactive organic liquids are atomized and reacted in the resulting flame, which is used for the synthesis of nanoscale disperse reaction products. Atomization, reaction kinetics, nucleation, coagulation and condensation in multiphase flows play an important role in this process.

Our expertise in this field, starting with the conceptual idea and reactor development, today enables the production of tailor-made nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces. We cooperate with numerous research institutes and industry in Germany, Europe, USA and Australia.

Our tailor-made materials and surfaces are used in catalysis, gas sensor technology, batteries, as multifunctional fillers (for example  tooth replacement materials), optical materials and in flexible electronic coatings. In addition, we produce nanomaterials with defined properties and investigate their bio-nano interactions in numerous cooperative projects.
