Mechanochemical synthesis of nanoparticles

The results of recent investigation of the mechanochemical synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles are reviewed. It was demonstrated that, by selecting suitable chemical reaction paths, stoichiometry of starting materials and milling conditions, mechanochemical processing can be used to synthesise a wide range of nanocrystalline particles dispersed within a soluble salt matrix. Selective removal of the matrix phase by washing the resulting powder with appropriate solvents can yield nanoparticles of the desired phase. This technique has been shown to have advantages over other methods of producing nanoparticles in terms of low cost, small particle sizes, low agglomeration, narrow size distributions and uniformity of crystal structure and morphology.
