Synthesis and Application of Nanoparticles by Multiphase Reactive Precipitation in a High-Gravity Reactor: II: Modeling
A mathematical model was developed to describe the particle size distribution of nanoparticles (e.g., CaCO3) synthesized by multiphase reactive precipitation in a high-gravity reactor reported in part I. This model utilizes a material balance, population balance, kinetics of crystallization, and mass transfer equations. The agreement between predictions and experimental results is satisfactory.
