Modeling iron particle synthesis in a shock wave reactor
In the present theoretical study, the formation and growth of iron particles originating from iron pentacarbonyl Fe(CO)5 decomposition behind weak reflected shock waves is presented. A simple model accounting for chemical reaction, homogeneous nucleation, surface growth, coagulation, and coalescence was used. The calculated results were compared to experimental data obtained from Time-Resolved-Laser-Induced-Incandescence (TR-LII) and high resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM).
