CRC 1411 – 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 optimisation based on predictive structure-property and process-structure functions. Particulate products, as considered in this CRC, consist in the simplest case of dispersed single particles and in more complex cases of hierarchically organised assemblies of particles in the form of supraparticles, thin films or stationary phases for chromatographic separation. We target scientific breakthroughs in the product engineering of nanoparticles with optimised optical properties produced by continuous synthesis directly coupled to property-specific classification of nanoparticles by chromatography. These challenges will be addressed from different perspectives in four strongly interlinked research areas. These will be underpinned by the development of joint methodologies in synthesis, classification, characterisation as well as modelling, simulation, and optimisation.

After 16 months of online seminars, workshops, project meetings and even poster sessions, from 19-21 July 2021 researchers of CRC 1411 gathered for the largest in person event since the kick-off meeting. As a follow-up to the successful online review meeting in June 2021, a poster session was held i...

We are delighted to report that Prof. Doris Segets, Principal Investigator of CRC 1411 Project A02, has been awarded the DECHEMA Prize 2020 and the Gottschalk-Diederich Baedeker Prize 2021. Prof. Segets studied Chemical and Biological Engineering at the FAU, completed her doctorate there in 2013 and...

From 21-22 June 2021 almost 50 researchers, including CRC 1411 PIs, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers and our Mercator fellows and external advisors, met online to review the status of the subprojects and collaborative activities. The main part of the meeting comprised a series of 15 minute talk...
