CAMP Professor Richard Partch Offers Short Course on Particle Coating Technology

Senior University Professor Richard Partch at CAMP is offering a short course ""Surface Modification of Particles for Improved Performance: Introduction to Particle Coating Technology." The other course Instructor is Dr. Curtis Zimmermann, Manager of New Technologies at Engelhard Corporation. The short course covers the fundamentals plus applications of most commercial particle and droplet coating processes currently in use by industry, as well as new technologies under investigation. Discussions include encapsulation of liquid droplets, preparation of templated porous particles, attachment of molecular functionalities to the surface of particles, and the coating of particles with a continuous uniform layer of material. This course will take place at Clarkson University's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) May 16-17, 2002. For more information about this course, you may call Professor Partch at 315-268-2351 or send email to him at partch@clarkson.edu.
