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.
