Nanomaterials have found their way into ordinary products such as foods, cosmetics, and sportswear. Why did ‘nano’ become so popular? And what risks are involved when getting exposed to these nanoengineered entities?
Here we list 10 methods that can be used to characterize the nanoparticle chemical composition.
To avoid potential adverse effects, it is relevant to study how nanoparticles interact with their surroundings. Here we present examples of how nanoparticle interaction with a variety of surfaces can be analyzed.
Nanoparticle size is one of the key parameters that are relevant to characterize in nanoparticle suspensions. Here we list six different methods that you can use to characterize the nanoparticle size.
Nanoparticle suspensions are complex systems and their characterization includes several parameters such as size, concentration in solution, shape, surface charge and chemical composition. Here we provide a list of methods that could be used to characterize nanoparticle suspensions.
There are several ways to deposit nanoparticles. Most methods are able to coat the surface, but for controlled monolayer deposition, more sophisticated methods are needed.
Nanoparticle suspensions are complex systems, and understanding their interaction with their environment requires characterization of a broad range of physicochemical properties. Here we present an overview of the key parameters that can be used to profile nanoparticle suspensions.
This blog post discusses the nanoparticle interaction in biological environment.
Nanoparticle lithography is a promising fabrication technique. Unlike other techniques, it has a potential to be performed on curved surfaces.
