Development of porous monomodal ceramic spheres as chromatography materials (CerChroMat)
At a glance
The aim of the project was the development of synthesis and
processes routes for the production of spherical, mechanically and
chemically stable monomodal ceramic particles with controlled
porosity for the use as chromatography materials.
The targeted properties were:
- Chemical stability against high and low pH
- High mecanical stability (ceramic)
- Narrow particle size distribution
- High specific surface
- Defined pore sizes
- Taylored surface functionalization, examples of materials of interest were e.g. ZrO2, TiO2, CeO2 or Al2O3.
