Magnetic Particles
Magnetic Particles

Chemically engineering of magnetic particles allows to tailor their magnetic properties. This can be exploited to obtain magnetically manipulatable objects which may be used for separation applications in catalysis, water purification or biotechnology. more

Hollow Particles
Hollow Particles

Hollow particles or capsules are of great interest for insulation applications or to store reactive substances which may be released on demand. more

Silica Particles
Silica Particles

Silica nanoparticles can be used for instance structure surfaces to turn them into dust-repellants or to modify polymers such as elastomers to give superior mechanical properties. more

Layered Particles
Layered Particles

Layered particles such as layered double hydroxides are prospective candidates for flame inhibiting fillers. Just as well they can be used as highly interesting adsorbers. more

Titanium, Zirconium, Zinc and Perovskite Oxide Particles
Titanium, Zirconium, Zinc and Perovskite Oxide Particles

Titanium, zirconium, zinc and perovskite oxide particles have various applications, for instance in the field of (photo-)catalysis or optics (refractive index modification). more
