Drying of Nano-Size Materials

  • A. Maskara (a1), V. Menon (a1), S. Wallace (a1) and D.M. Smith (a1)

Abstract

The physics and chemistry of drying of nano-size materials (porous solids or particles with characteristic dimensions less than 100 nm) is considered. Approaches for reducing capillary pressure and surface passivation in an effort to avoid shrinkage are presented. In addition, the effect of key variables on drying costs (both capital and operating/energy) is presented.
