Environmentally friendly method for making nanoparticles

By / July 14, 2009

Singapore’s Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology has discovered a new, inexpensive and environmentally friendly method to synthesize nanoparticles. This chemical synthesis was recently published in Nature Materials. IBN researchers developed a protocol to transfer metal ions from an aqueous solution to an organic solution such as toluene. Metal compounds that can dissolve in water are…
