Nanocourse on Particle Design

21.  - 22. Oktober 2015




Basic course on Particle Design

Braunschweig, 21-22 October 2015

Course information / Programme   pdficon


Course organiser: Prof. Dr.- Ing. A. Kwade

Nano Course

In the last years grinding and dispersing processes became more important in order to design particles. For example regarding pharmaceutical products the reduction of particle size is a strategy to enhance the bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs.

This course will focus on top-down techniques for particles via comminution, dispersing and emulsification processes. Further associated questions and challenges regarding the product formulation will be addressed. The targeted adjustment of product properties and different stabilization strategies by controlling particle-particle interactions will  be presented.

Another focus is ultrafine milling in stirred media mills. Therefore, process parameters and strategies for lowering the product contamination by milling wear will be discussed.


  • Ultrafine wet milling of particles
  • Design characteristics of mills for fine grinding processes
  • Particle-particle interactions and stabilization
  • Dispersing nanoparticles
  • Microsystems for emulsification and dispersing processes
  • Top-down applications for ceramic and pharmaceutical products
