Research and application of techniques for the generation of functional nanostructures by polymerization of heterogeneous reaction systems in continuously operated photoreactors.
Liquid-liquid heterophases in the form of miniemulsions for the preparation of latex by photopolymerization. The formed monodisperse nanoparticles, adjustable in size (30 - 300 nm diameter), can be loaded with active ingredients, modified with catalysts or secondarily functionalized with biocomponents.
Gas-liquid heterophases in the form of aerosols for the preparation of polymer nanostructures, nanostructured and hybrid particles. The reaction mixture of monomers and solvents, which can be loaded with active ingredients and or (semi)metallic nanoparticles, is atomized in nitrogen as a carrier gas and converted into a functionalized particle aerosol in a flow-through photoreactor.
