HOW THE PROCESS WORKS


Figure 1 shows a schematic view of a single functional spray unit of the nanoparticle generator. The capillary tips can be massed in precise configurations to produce high through-put operation.

Figure 2 (below) shows a magnified view of the capillary tip. On the left is the tip operating in pulsating mode and the meniscus of fluid is clearly visible. On the right is the tip operating in the cone jet mode where the electrical field forces the tip into the sharp point from which a nanofibril can be seen emerging from the tip. This fibril is unstable and breaks up into charged particles comprised of solvent carrier and active agent(s). The solvent evaporates due to the extremely high surface area.

Figure 3 shows uncoated nanoparticles of a model drug compound produced using ElectroNanoSpray? Nanoparticle size distribution is extremely tight, here shown as 18.8?.1 nm. Size is controllable by varying the process parameters.
