How to prepare functional nanostructures?

Tuesday, 22 October 2013

Nanogels, sol-gels and diverse organic and inorganic hybrid nanoparticles can be prepared with an interesting new technology developed in a chinese-german cooperation

To know how to produce nanoparticles as well as how to measure them in wet coatings is important

Zhihai Cao from Hanzhou Normal University in China and Ulrich Ziener from the University of Ulm in Germany synthesised nanostructured materials in inverse miniemulsions and showed their applications (published at Nanoscale Issue 21, 2013)

The inverse miniemulsion technique

Hydrophilic functional cargos, such as proteins, DNA, and macromolecular fluoresceins, may be conveniently encapsulated in these nanostructured materials. In this review, the progress of inverse miniemulsions since 2000 is summarised on the basis of the types of reactions carried out in inverse miniemulsions.

This review includes

  • conventional free radical polymerization,
  • controlled/living radical polymerization,
  • polycondensation,
  • polyaddition,
  • anionic polymerization,
  • catalytic oxidation reaction,
  • sol–gel process,
  • and precipitation reaction of inorganic precursors.

In addition, the applications of the nanostructured materials synthesized in inverse miniemulsions are also reviewed.

Measurement of nanoparticles in wet coatings

In the next European Coatings Journal, Issue November 2013, Margret Böck from Microtrac Europe, Germany and Gerald Trabesinger from Eternit in Switzerland will explain more about the measurement of Nanoparticles in solution and the testing of it. Böck already summarised this
