Synthesis and functionalization of Nanoparticles

- Synthesis

Cnano has expertise in the synthesis on demand of small batches of various type of nanoparticles by utilizing top down or bottom up techniques. Wet chemistry and electrochemical routes are used for production of metal and oxide nanoparticles. Nanoparticles such as Au, Ag, Cu, Cu alloys and Ni can be produced in quantities of up to 100mg with high precision in shape and size. Oxide nanoparticles such as TiO2, doped-TiO2, SiO2, doped-SiO2, can be produced in batches of up to 5gr. On the other hand a large variety of while by utilizing high energy ball milling nano-structured particles of various oxides and carbides can be obtained.

- Nanoparticles functionalization

Functionalization enhances the properties and characteristics of nanoparticles through surface modification, and enables them to play a major role in engineering, environmental and medicine applications.

Characterisation facilities

Through our advanced characterisation facilities, we deliver high quality analyses on evaluating a wide range of raw materials and final products. In our laboratory we perform state-of-the-art analyses and characterisation including photocatalytic/self-cleaning evaluation of powders and surfaces, water-physicochemical analyses, hardness and corrosion testing, as well as chemical composition, mechanical and electrochemical behaviour evaluation.

Environmental Science

Responsible industrial development calls for manufacturing of marketable products, while ensuring a healthy working environment and minimizing environmental impact. At Creative nano we strive to achieve responsible development and are constantly developing new and improving existing approaches towards environmental safety and protection. Our areas of expertise are safe-by-design product development, environmental assessment support services, and environmental monitoring.
