Design of Particulate Products
The key objective and long-term vision of Collaborative Research Centre 1411 is the targeted design of particulate products by rigorous optimization based on predictive structure-property and process-structure functions. Particulate products, as considered in this CRC, consist in the simplest cases of dispersed single particles and in more complex cases of hierarchically organized assemblies of particles in the form of supraparticles, thin films or stationary phases for chromatographic separation. The research consortium targets breakthroughs in the product engineering of nanoparticles with optimized optical properties produced by continuous synthesis directly coupled to property-specific classification of nanoparticles by chromatography. These challenges are addressed from different perspectives in four strongly interlinked research areas. Moreover, they are underpinned by the develop- ment of joint methodologies in synthesis, classification, characterization as well as modelling, simulation, and optimization.

To coincide with the consortium entering its fourth year, the CRC 1411 International Symposium brings together researchers from around the world to showcase the latest progress in the targeted design of particulate products supported by rigorous optimization of structure-property and process-structure functions.
