American Elements Announces Novel Surface Functionalized Nanoparticle Production Method

(Nanowerk News) American Elements announced today the development of a novel new process for the large scale production of surface functionalized nanoparticles, such as Dodecanethiol Functionalized Gold Nanoparticles, allowing for their use in a greater number of commercial applications. Surface functionalized nanomaterials have controlled surface chemistries which enhance the adhesion or the dispersion properties of the nanopowder in polymers, plastics and coatings for improved magnetic, fluorescent, dielectric, and catalytic characteristics. Surface Functionalized Nanoparticles have particular application in LEDs, drug delivery systems, sensors and electronics.
