Metal Nanopowders, Producers of Exceptional Purity and Quality Nanopowders In a Range of Pure Metals and Metal Alloys

Nanotechnology Area

Metal Nanopowders Ltd, a spin-off from the University of Birmingham, is dedicated to the production of metal powders at the sub-100nm scale. Metal Nanopowders facilities allow them to produce nanopowders with exceptional purity & physical properties.

Description of Activities

The powders have excellent as-produced size distributions and are ideal for nanopowder research work. Metal Nanopowders can supply samples from the following powders produced using their unique process:

•        Aluminium

•        Iron

•        Copper

•        Nickel

•        Magnesium

•        Titanium

•        Titanium Nitride

Metal Nanopowders can also produce other metal nanopowders to meet your requirements, available on request.


The demand for ultra-fine metal powders continues to grow as new applications are identified and developed. Below is a list of example applications:

•        Catalysts & Hydrogen Storage

•        Solid Rocket Fuel

•        Conducting Paste

•        Magnetic tapes & fluid

•        Targeted drug delivery

•        Metallic paint

•        Sintering/sintering aids
