Advanced Functional Materials just accepted our work, in which we demonstrate for the first time the successful design of a true communicating particle which not only carries a unique ID but also a recorder functionality all in one entity. The full title is: “Communicating Particles: Identification ...

Citrates are very often used to surface-functionalize iron oxide nanoparticles after their synthesis. However, they are not employed directly during synthesis as it is commonly observed that they inhibit the precipitation of the iron species. In our latest paper, which was just accepted by Particle ...

Agglomeration of magnetic nanoparticles in dispersion cannot only be controlled upon temperature change but this can also be measured in situ via magnetic particle spectroscopy! More detailed infromation can be found here.
Great collaboration with the group of Tobias Kraus and the Fraunhofer IIS .

Spray-drying nanoparticles is not only interesting to create supraparticles. It is also a way to generate solid-filled aerosols. The process is a model to what happens when humans cough or sneeze virus particles such as SARS-CoV-2. Using harmless fluorescent silica-based virus analogues, it can easi...
