Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The application of continuous microwave polyol process for the production of nanophase materials is discussed. In this continuous microwave process, much higher production rates can be achieved relative to the conventional batch process. This process can be operated at pressures well above atmospheric pressure, thus suppressing boiling and eliminating process variability associated with the reflux system. The continuous microwave polyol process can be used to produce single phase metals or various combination or mixtures of metals.
