Metal Nanoparticles

In recent years, researchers in the field of nanotechnology are finding that metal nanoparticles have all kinds of previously-unexpected benefits in both the conventional technology and experimental medical industries.

These nanostructured metal powders (in some cases they may even be alloys) are typically reduced to their particle size using metal salts or some type of corrosive alcohol.

Copper nanoparticles constitute some of the most versatile and useful metal nanoparticles currently in production.

In electronics manufacturing it has been found that thin films of extra-small copper particles exhibit a peculiarly strong electrocatalytic behavior, making them prime candidates for many types of electric processes.
