Dry- vs. Wet-nanotechnology Fluids (gases & liquids) vs. Solidsin Nature and (Chemical & Bio) Industry More degree of freedoms more opportunities(also more challenges) Nanofluids: nanoparticles in base fluids* Understanding nano-scale particle-fluid interactions in physical-, chemical-, and bio-processes, and engineering new/enhanced functional products Directed self-assembly:* starts from suspension of nanoparticles in fluids* ends with advanced sensors and actuators, devices,systems, and processes Synergy of dry-nanotechnology (solid-state) & wet-nanotechnology (POLY-nanofluids) 4 5. Nanofluids:Suspensions of nanoparticles in base fluidsSize does matter: unique transport properties,different from conventional suspensions:do not settle under gravity, do not block flow, etc Enhancing functions and properties bycombining and controlling interactions Combining different nanoparticles (structure,size) in different base-fluids with additives Controlling interactions using different mixingmethods and thermal-, flow-, catalyst-, and otherfield-conditions5 6.
