Title

Quantitative analysis of size fractionation of magnetic nanoparticles

Abstract

"Work has previously been done to develop a theoretical model for the size fractionation of iron nanoparticles. This model is solved using COMSOL Multiphysics, a PDE solver using finite element analysis. The model consists of a magnetic field generated across a rectangular field flow fractionation channel. A continuous particle distribution of particles at a known concentration is used to model the magnetic nanoparticles. The particles are modeled through convection and diffusion. Samples were simulated at different magnetic field strengths, particle sizes, and fluid properties. Multiple regression performed on the dimensionless data determined an estimating equation for the elution time of particles"--Abstract, leaf iv.
