Shaping Light-Activated Nanocatalysts

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
HOUSTON, Sept. 25, 2020 — A comparative study from Rice University researchers in the college’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) demonstrated how the shape of nanoparticles affects their ability to drive light-activated reactions. The work is part of LANP’s ongoing green chemistry initiative to develop commercially viable, light-activated nanocatalysts that can insert energy into chemical reactions with surgical precision. The researchers studied differently shaped, but otherwise identical, aluminum nanoparticles, the most rounded of which had 14 sides and 24 blunt points. The second was cube...Read full article
