Surfactant-free Colloidal Solutions for nano-Catalysts with enhanced properties

Project description

A novel route to metallic nanoparticle synthesis

Nanoparticles are important nanomaterials in many fields of applications. Their potential is virtually limitless thanks to their unique and exotic properties relative to bulk forms of the same materials, their ability to be functionalised as required, and their extremely high surface areas. Surfactants are commonly used in nanoparticle synthesis to prevent the aggregation of nanoparticles and allow control over their final shape. However, in most cases and particularly in catalysis, these agents are detrimental to the final applications. The EU-funded CoSolCat will explore a recently patented synthesis method and develop new production strategies that do not require surfactants to obtain nanoparticles. Insights gained are expected to lead to new and improved catalysts for industry.
