Nanoparticles are ultrafine units used in many different fields, from the biomedical sector and pharmaceutics to energy storage technologies. Due to their size, they are difficult to track and measure, but it’s essential to know their properties so they can be designed to fulfill their purpose.
Different measurement technologies can be used to produce and characterize nanoparticles, such as microwave synthesis, atomic force microscopy, dynamic light scattering, SAXS, laser diffraction and many more.
On this page, you will find specific research topics, e.g. the generation of hexagonal flower-like wurtzite-type zinc oxide structures for energy storage purposes with microwave synthesis, and the drug delivery capability of nanoparticle systems and RNA nanoparticles for gene silencing, analyzed and investigated with dynamic light scattering (DLS) and electrophoretic light scattering (ELS).
You will also find a study on aluminum particles for nanolithography conducted with an AFM, and the results of an investigation on ferric nanoparticle complexes for intravenous application via SAXS, DLS and ELS. Anton Paar’s highly precise instruments for your research on nanoparticles have been used for decades at top universities and research facilities worldwide.
