"The unique properties of nanoparticles and nanoparticle clusters show high potential for nanomaterials to be formulated into numerous products. In this paper, nanosuspensions are formulated by breaking up nanoparticle clusters (called agglomerates) in high-shear flows," scientists writing in the journal Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research report.
"A new breakage model is introduced to interpret erosive dispersion of agglomerates, and the population balance modeling is applied to account for effects of breakage on agglomerate size distribution. Effects of suspension structure on its theology and flow are included in modeling: The population balance equations...
