I am working with a company that wants to utilize the powers of silver through antimicrobials. The company is looking is to add these nanoparticles to their textile products in the dye bath. The company wants me to look at the most economic way of doing this whether investing in the equipment to manufacture or a supplier. Can someone point me in the right direction of the most efficient synthesis equipment to produce nanoparticles between 10 - 15 nm. What type of equipment is needed to produce on a mass scale. Please help me? What other info is needed to spec out equipment?

Thanks

i have been synthesized different shapes of Ag nanoparicles via spherical, rod shape and cube shapes for biological application (antibacterial study).

Hi Fisher

You can prepare Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) by two routes physical and chemical.
of which physical route will be bit costly, the best physical route in terms of cost efficiency could be laser ablation.

Otherwise, chemical routes and biological routes are well developed and can produce large amount of Ag NPs, but you have to choose right method and controlling agent to synthesize 10-15 nm particles

Best of luck

hi herman

manufacturing silver nano-particles, also in large quantities, is quiet easy. Basically you need glasware and a stirrer. Given the low price of nanosilver it may be not worthwhile to make it on your own. Please feel free to contact us

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
