Metal Nanoparticles

Metal Nanoparticle Applications

Metal nanoparticles (also known as colloidal metal) have been around for a very long time, with the original scientific references dating over one hundred and fifty years ago*. Both pure metal and metal oxide colloids are used in a wide variety of applications including catalysts, ferrofluids, biological markers, and many others. Particle size and zeta potential of these suspensions are critical physical parameters that affect functionality and stability. The SZ-100 Nanoparticle Analyzer is an excellent analytical tool for determining particle size and zeta potential of metal colloids.

Particle Size Analysis of Gold Nanoparticles
DescriptionGold nanoparticles are of great interest for researchers in many fields. The size distribution of the particles is an important physical characteristic that influences particle behavior. The most common technique to measure the size of gold nanoparticles is DLS. The HORIBA SZ-100 system has proven to be an excellent choice for accurate and reproducible particle size analysis of gold nanoparticles.

Sizing Silica Particles by DLS
DescriptionThe utility of silica nanoparticles is often determined by the particle size. Dynamic light scattering provides fast, accurate and repeatable nanoparticle size information and therefore is an important tool for the nanoparticle technologist. Here, two different size silica particles are characterized with the SZ-100 in order to demonstrate the accuracy and utility of the instrument.
