The results of our previous work were carried out based on the laboratory experimental data (loading 100 cc reacting mixtures in a 200 cc beaker and shaking in an isothermal shaker). In this work, the scale-up production (2 liter or more) of nanosized silver particles is desirable. Extension of the identified data-driven model from the laboratory experimental data to find the optimal operating conditions for scale-up production is achieved by the tailored experiment design. A reliable optimum condition for operating a process can be determined on the basis of the sequential constructed data-driven model originated from the identified model of a small-scale system. Only limited experiments are required. A simulated example and the experimental synthesis of nanosized silver particles were adopted as the testing systems. The proposed heuristic optimization algorithm was examined and proven to be applicable. Advisor Committee Jyh-Shyong Chang - advisor
