Rapid and Scalable Synthesis of Homogenous and Functionalizable Nanospheres that Resist Agglomeration

RFT-351

Nanomaterials have the potential to revolutionize products across dozens of sectors.  But nanomaterial performance has lagged, in part because of two critical limitations:

• Nanoparticles tend to agglomerate, effectively becoming “micro” or larger clumps that lose many of their “nano” properties. 
• Nano size doesn’t automatically provide commercially valuable performance.  Nanoparticles may need to incorporate functional sites to exhibit desired properties

NDSU researchers have developed a rapid, inexpensive, and scalable process to synthesize nanospheres that resist agglomeration and offer multiple approaches to functionalization.
