One projection our group supported by CIMM is aimed at electrochemical methods to manufacture metal micro- and nanoparticles. Molten spray methods, which are the most widely used method for larger particles to be used in 3D manufacturing, are produced using a spray atomizer of one form or another. Some sprays use gas, flames, or water. Electrochemistry is well understood and has been in used for many processes for a long time. However, electrochemistry has not been widely studied for the purpose of manufacturing micro- and nanoparticles.
