Catalysis

One of the most important usage of our metal nanoparticles is in the field of catalysis. Based on which metal is used a broad range of catalytical reactions will be possible to accomplish. Not to mention how easy it is to make and use nano-alloys or simple mixtures of two or more metal nanoparticles for receiving tandem catalytical effects.

By using a nanotransporter for the encapsulation and carrying of the metal nanoparticles we receive many of the benefits from homogeneous catalysis with the main profit from heterogeneous catalysis which is that the catalyst can easily be recovered afterwards. This recovery can be done by phase separation, by filtration, by extraction or by precipitation.

This deceased loss of catalysts coming from these simple ways of recovering the catalyst makes it even interesting for the production of pharmaceuticals due to the high demands of product purity.
