PAT4Nano (Process Analytical Technology Tools for Real-Time Physical and Chemical Characterization of Nanosuspensions).

The project, PAT4Nano (Process Analytical Technology Tools for Real-Time Physical and Chemical Characterization of Nanosuspensions) is funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Research and innovation actions (RIA). The activity is part of the DT-NMBP-08-2019: Real-time nano-characterisation technologies call. Nanosuspensions are a critical material type found in everything from pharmaceuticals, to inks, paints, and fine chemicals used in advanced manufacturing. The accurate measurement of nanosuspensions and the size of nanoparticles is critical for efficient manufacturing processes and ultimately the performance of materials. PAT4Nano aims to develop tools to enable the continuous, rapid, and reliable measurement of nanoparticles to facilitate the more efficient, less costly, and accurate manufacture of nanomaterials. The project has developed several different measurement methodologies, each of which has (or is) being evaluated for a variety of industrial processes:-- In Galway we are developing Raman based sizing methods.-- Malvern PanAnalytical (UK): online Laser Diffraction. -- InProcess LSP (Netherlands): Spatially Resolved- Dynamic Light Scattering-- TNO (Netherlands): Ultrasonic nanoparticle sizer.-- Fraunhofer (Germany): Online Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS). In PAT4Nano the consortium end user partners, Janssen Pharmaceutica, Agfa-Gevaert, and Johnson Matthey, are working on diverse applications in pharmaceuticals, inks/pigments, and materials for catalysis, batteries, and glass manufacture. They are evaluating the efficacy of the different technologies being developed. These technologies are also suited for the analysis of biogenic materials. Grant agreement No 862413
