Synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles and their application on ceramic substrates
At the moment scientific research is being carried out on nanoparticles (particles with dimensions below 500 nm up to 1 nm) for their synthesis and for their application in industrial processes. Many applications can be thought of for nanoparticles materials, from catalysis to bioinorganic systems, form textile to pharmaceutical fields etc. Basically all the improvements which resulted when microparticles were developed can now be extended to nanoparticle based products with the difference that the physical and chemical properties of materials often change when in nanometric form. The most critical aspects encountered are the limits involved in using the reactions to obtain controlled particle shapes and dimensions in very short ranges.
