Custom Synthesis of Metal/Porous Nanoparticles

Standardized synthesis of

  1. Gold nanoparticles (nanoclusters, 5 nm, 10 nm, 16 nm)

  2. Silver nanoparticles (nanoclusters, 10 nm, 40 nm, 95 nm)

  3. Iron oxide nanoparticles (10 nm)

  4. Gadolinium oxide (5 nm, 10 nm)

  5. Hafnium oxide (5 nm, 10 nm)

  6. Microporous silica particles (15 nm, 50 nm, 100 nm, 400 nm)

Other nanoparticles currently being optimized include bismuth, nickel, palladium and semi-conductor quantum dots. If you require nanoparticles not listed above, please get in touch with us. Nanoparticles synthesis normally share common synthetic techniques. So it wouldn’t be a stretch to custom synthesize nanoparticle cores to meet a lab’s specific needs.

All nanoparticles are characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and zeta potential.
