Nanopowder Compounds Unleash Potentials for Nano-Sensors, Nano-Semiconductors, Nano-Ceramics and Nano-Catalysts
Alfa Chemistry, a worldwide supplier of various forms of nanomaterials, such as nanoparticles, nanopowders, and carbon nanotubes, recently announced the supply of nanopowder compounds, which hold promise in the manufacturing of nano-sensors, nano-semiconductors, nano-ceramics, as well as nano-catalysts.
Composed of two or more elements, nanopowder compounds are known for their unique properties like tiny size with high surface area, lighter weight, reactivity, conductivity, and corrosion resistance.
“By using different constituent elements, nanopowder compounds can have many more tailor-made properties,” said a senior scientist from Alfa Chemistry. “Generally speaking, the chemicals we supply can be in small quantity for research purposes and in bulk order for industry groups. All depends on the actual needs of our customers.”
Possible applications of nanopowder compounds:
Highly sensitive to temperature changes, infrared rays, and automobile exhaust, nanopowder compounds such as zirconia, nickel oxide, titanium dioxide, and many other ceramics can be used in manufacturing temperature sensors, infrared detectors, and automobile exhaust gas detectors.
Nanopowdered gallium arsenide and other semiconductor materials are ideal choices for manufacturing large-scale integrated circuit devices and optoelectronic devices.
Nano-ceramics prepared by nanopowder compounds are usually in small crystal grain sizes, extremely high strength, high toughness, and good ductility, enabling the use in cold working at room or sub-high temperature.
Due to the small size and large surface volume fraction, as well as surface chemical bond state and electronic state, the nanopowder compound is an excellent catalyst. For instance, nickel or copper-zinc nanoparticles can be alternatives to the traditionally used platinum or palladium catalysts, which are expensive, and catalyze the hydrogenation reaction of certain organics.
