Production of ultradispersed nano powders with electric explosion method

Matter in form of powders is widely used at home and in industry. Usually we deal with the powders with a size of particles – from tens to hundreds micrometers. Even the powders used in powder metallurgy have the size of particles more than 10 micrometers.
It is known that when decreasing the size of particles, the properties of powders change, but chemical activity increases, coagulation temperature falls, some new properties, not typical for the materials in massive (roughly dispersed) state appear. During the last years such new fields of science as claster chemistry (the size of particles < 5nm), physical chemistry of ultradispersed mediums (the size of structural fragments < 100 nm) and nano material technology have intensely started to develop. The interest to these applications is connected with a search of possibilities to create more powerful chemical sources of energy, new construction materials, equipment and technological processes allowing to provide a principal breakthrough in technology and equipment.
Analysis of literature concerning the properties of the nano powders (UDP) shows that some of their characteristics are connected only with a small size of nano particles, other properties are caused by structure-energy characteristics. Changes in fundamental properties of traditional materials in the ultradispersed state (the decrease of the thaw point temperature, evaporation heat, ionization energy, photoelectric work function of electrons etc.) open large possibilities in the sphere of creation of completely new materials and technologies, devices and equipment.
Achievements of the last 10-15 years in the production of ceramic materials have radically changed the situation with the input powders. Now all the synthetic and chemically purified materials for the production of ceramics are initially the highly dispersed or even ultradispersed nano powders. Attempts made by technologists to get more and more fine powders have lead to the situation when more complicated technologies that were considered too expensive and hence not prospective before, began to replace traditional methods.
The elaboration of the new technologies of production of different nanopowders (UDPs), studies of nano properties and research of effective spheres of nano application nowadays have become one of the most important trends of science and technology development.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
