We demonstrate the design, fabrication, and operation of microfluidic chemical reactors for the synthesis of colloidal silica particles. Two reactor configurations are examined: laminar flow reactors and segmented flow reactors. We analyze particle sizes and size distributions and examine their change with varying linear flow velocity and mean residence time. Laminar flow reactors are affected by axial dispersion at high linear velocities, thus leading to wide particle size distributions under… CONTINUE READING
