ESR 09: Capillary nanosuspensions for fabrication of smart porous materials

To understand the influence of combination of particles of different sizes and wettabilities as well as the properties of the liquid phases on the network structure and rheology of capillary nanosuspensions. To fabricate and characterize porous bodies from capillary suspensions containing particles of at least two different wettabilities and nanoparticles.
Expected Results:
– Results of confocal microscopy using fluorescent dies on the particles distribution in networks of capillary nanosuspensions, whereas the particle size distribution is controlled, and particles of different surface properties are used;
– results on rheological measurements of capillary nanosuspensions;
– results on characterization of porous materials fabricated from capillary
