The synthesis of zirconia nanoparticle in low pressure flames was experimentally studied. In a simple axisymmetric velocity flowfield, in which thermal and chemical profiles are 1D, the computational modeling is greatly simplified. Different temperature-time profiles are obtained by varying the total pressure, the axial dimension, the total volumetric flow, and the dilution and stoichiometry of the flame. Results from the synthesis experiments are compared with the computer model predictions for each case.
