Abstract:

We outline a theoretical framework for estimating the evolution of the particle size distribution in colloid and nanoparticle synthesis, when the primary growth mode is by externally controlled addition of singlet building blocks. The master equations, analyzed in the leading non-diffusive expansion approximation, are reduced to a set of easily numerically programmable relations that yield information on the time evolution of the particle size distribution.
