NanoHybrids at AEROGELS 2018 – Investigation of External Mass Transfer Effects in Supercritical Drying of Alcogel Particles
One of the lectures relating to NanoHybrids results present investigation of external mass transfer effects in supercritical drying of alcogel particles. Organic aerogels in the form of particles are considered as promising materials for a wide variety of applications such as drug delivery, biosensing and food technology due their unique properties and biocompatibility.
The NanoHybrids Consortium and their research colleagues beyond the project have a strong interest to enhance and distribute the knowledge on their fascinating research area much wider. Thus TUHH’s Institute for Thermal Separation Processes created a website for the Aerogel Community
AEROGELS 2018 – Supercritical drying of aerogels – Thermodynamic considerations for critical process steps
The session on Supercritical Drying on 26 September 2018 at the Fourth International Seminar on Aerogels will start with André Mohs and Volker Steinhagen from Uhde High Pressure Technologies, one of the sponsors of the conferencs. As experts in High Pressure Technologies they will present an overview on some critical process steps of the aerogel […]
Pilot scale production and industrial application of synthetic aerogels based on novel chemistry form part of the core research in NanoHybrids, in addition to biopolymer aerogels as the second pillar. Associate professor Patrina Paraskevopoulou (PhD) and her research team Maria Papastergiou (PhD), Despoina Chriti (PhD candidate) and Grigorios Raptopoulos (PhD) at the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory […]
The first lecture of the Fourth International Seminar on AEROGELS after lunch on Tuesday, 25 September 2018, by Dr. Stephen Steiner and his team at Aerogel Technologies, will present a novel application of monolithic polymer aerogels which can contribute to improve the fuel efficiency of vehicles.
