"Some plants has a surfactant base compound that will encapsulate nanoparticles, so it's because of plant you are getting oily like sample. And for water treatment application definitely it will affect the efficiency of your NPs. Regards Imanuel"

Sticky Nature of Biologically Synthesized Iron Oxide Nanoparticles

I have been synthesizing iron oxide nanoparticles using plant material for quiet some time now.I am preparing plant extractm making it alkaline and then mixing it with metal salt solution with magnetic stirring. The reaction mixture is then dried by placing it on hot plate.But, the dried product appears to be oily/sticky....What could be the reason for this? I am going to use as-synthesized nanoparticles for water treatment.Will this oily nature of the product affect the efficiency of…See More

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
