Miss Emily Hyde
School of Engineering
Emily Hyde completed her combined bachelor degrees in Chemical Engineering (Hons) and Science (Chemistry) at the University of Newcastle (UoN) in 2013. In 2014, she began her PhD studies at the UoN with the aim to investigate heavy metal ion extraction and mineral separation utilising silica-coated magnetic particles. Currently, Emily’s research is focused on the biomimetic fabrication of silica shells on magnetic particles and the adsorption/extraction of heavy metal ions from solution using these magnetic-silica core-shell particles.
Over the course of her postgraduate and undergraduate degrees, Emily has authored several publications. These publications include original research publications in The Journal of Physical Chemistry B and Advanced Powder Technology, and a review published in the Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research journal. Emily’s most recent professional achievements include being the recipient of an Engineers Australia scholarship to attend Young Women Scientist 2014 conference in Seoul, Republic of Korea and being an awardee at the Engineering Faculties Poster Prize Competition 2014 and 2015.

Â© 2016 The Society of Powder Technology Japan The process to commercially synthesise silica particles with specific properties is a topic of ongoing research since their use in industrial applications including catalysis, coatings and separation materials has dramatically increased in the last decade. Here, silica particles were made using hydrolysed trimethoxymethylsilane (TMOMS) in the presence of either polyethyleneimine or aqueous sodium hydroxide catalysts. This work presents the first in depth study of the effect of TMOMS concentration on silica particles produced by both of these synthetic methods by comparing their size, morphology and chemical structure. The PEI-silica particles were larger in size and greater in yield than the NaOH-silica particles. It was also determined that both species of silica particles are hydrophobic without requiring further surface modification; and that those made with PEI have a higher contact angle, perhaps due to more complete polymerisation. The results demonstrate how relatively facile synthesis routes can wield a high degree of control over the physicochemical properties of silica particles, which is of paramount importance in silica production process intensification.

Â© 2016 American Chemical Society. Colloidal silica is used in many applications including catalysis, pharmaceuticals, and coatings. Although naturally formed silica materials are widely available, they are often in forms that are difficult to process or are even harmful to health. Therefore, uniform colloidal silicas are generally manufactured using synthetic chemical processes. While established high temperature gaseous synthesis methods fall out of favor in our energy conscious society, liquid synthesis methods are current industrial leaders. The precipitated silica method provides the majority share of commercially produced specialty silicas with its economic advantages predicted to continue to grow in the future. The biomimetic method and microemulsion methods of synthesis provide a superior level of surface chemistry and morphological control than current industrial processes and are the major focus of current silica synthesis research. Movement toward more tailor-made products and ecologically friendly production methods will likely provide incentive for biomimetic methods, in particular, to take more of a market share. However, the lack of procedures to viably scale up the biomimetic and microemulsion methods still forms significant gaps in the literature. In this review, the current methods of colloidal silica synthesis are discussed alongside significant models and mechanisms of silica formation.
