Catalyst particle-embedded luminescent nanoparticles for temperature sensing

Sponsor:       MCEC, since November 2014

Supervisor:   Prof. dr. Andries Meijerink, Prof. dr. Bert Weckhuysen and Prof. dr. Alfons van Blaaderen


The thermally activated character of most reactions make that the reaction rate and also the selectivity of chemical reactions are strongly dependent on temperature. Monitoring the homogeneity of the temperature in a reaction vessel is however not trivial. In this project nanosized probes for temperature sensing will be developed, which allow the accurate determination of temperature with high spatial and temporal resolution.

In the first part of this project new probes will be developed, characterized and optimized with respect to temperature sensitivity and stability under reaction conditions. 

The second part of this project involves testing of the temperature probes. Using confocal microscopy, the spatial temperature distribution will be imaged in miniature reaction vessels.

The final stage of the project aims to implement the temperature probes and monitor heat flow during industrial relevant conditions. This will be done by embedding the nanoparticles in pellets and testing the assembled system in a quartz reactor.
