Wet chemically synthesized nanoparticles with designed properties


Icon: Nanoparticles with designed propertiesNanoparticles possess characteristic and unique physical / functional properties. Their size, shape and composition determines the ultimate properties. Chemical synthesis control enables tailoring these physical properties. We synthesize and surface functionalize inorganic nanoparticles, in particularly metal oxide nanoparticles, by means of bottom-up wet chemistry and subsequently use these as building blocks to assemble functional supraparticles. A main interest is on magnetic, luminescent and adsorber nano building blocks.
