  1. Segmented Flow-Based Multistep Synthesis of Cadmium Selenide Quantum Dots with Narrow Particle Size Distribution

    Viktor Misuk, Maxim Schmidt, Sandra Braukmann, Konstantinos Giannopoulos, Dominik Karl and Holger Loewe

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201500115

    Quantum dots are nanocrystalline semiconductors that differ greatly from their bulk counterparts. To obtain CdSe quantum dots with a narrow size distribution, a two-step procedure was applied, in which CdSe seeds were synthesized in a separate process prior to the nanoparticle growing procedure. The seeds were mixed into the growing solution-containing droplet by coaxial injection.

  2. Fluidized-Bed Chemical Vapor Deposition of Silicon on Very Dense Tungsten Powder

    Florence Vanni, Mélanie Montaigu, Brigitte Caussat, Carine Ablitzer, Xavière Iltis and Méryl Brothier

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201400350

    Very dense tungsten powders simulating nuclear fuel particles were coated by silicon from silane using fluidized-bed chemical vapor deposition in a reactor with reduced diameter. Fluidization of such particles could be reached, but with non-optimal gas-solid contact due to their high density. Conditions were found to form 0.5 µm thick continuous silicon layers on the powder surface.

  3. Fabrication of a Chitosan-Coated Magnetic Nanobiocatalyst for Starch Hydrolysis

    Manisha Jain, Mariya Sebatini, Govindasamy Sharmila, Chandrasekaran Muthukumaran, Gurunathan Baskar and Krishnamurthi Tamilarasan

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201400493

    Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can serve as a superior solid matrix for enzyme immobilization. Covalent immobilization of α-amylase onto chitosan-coated MNPs was optimized by response surface methodology. This nanobiocatalyst with high temperature and pH stability can be applied in industries for economical and highly efficient starch hydrolysis.

  4. Process Intensification Tools in the Small-Scale Pharmaceutical Manufacturing of Small Molecules

    Aleksandar Mitic and Krist V. Gernaey

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201400765

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Promising tools for accelerating slow chemical reactions in organic synthesis in order to achieve process intensification are reviewed with the focus on microwave radiation, meso-scale tubular reactors, microreactors, and ultrasounds. Applications of such tools for producing small molecules in the pharmaceutical industry are discussed and illustrated with examples.
