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