|Nanoparticle Production Systems
Nanoparticle production systems generate nanoscale particles in a precisely-defined, limited range of sizes for a range of uses, including the production of formulated coatings and other composite materials.
Specific production and reaction factors are essential to produce the desired size-dependent particle features. Particle proportions, chemical makeup, crystallinity, and form can be chosen by adjusting temperature, pH, chemical composition, surface alterations and process factors.
Two standard nanoparticle production systems are used: 'top-down' and 'bottom-up'. 'Top-down' refers to the physical crushing of source material using a milling system. 'Bottom-up' strategies build particles via chemical operations. Choosing a method should be determined by the chemical makeup and the features chosen for the nanoparticles.
