Technical innovations in light emitting diodes (LEDs) and photovoltaics have consistently reflected the similarities between the two technologies. In fact, research groups at many universities, such as the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Mich.; www.umich.edu) and the University of Southern California (USC; Los Angeles, Calif.; www.usc.edu), are studying both simultaneously. With pressing consumer...

As the nanoparticle market continues to swell, expertise is surfacing about nanoparticle grinding and dispersion processes. A grinding solution (wet grinding with agitator bead mills) achieves the production of nanoparticles with an average fineness of 40–100 nanometers (nm). However, dispersion doesn’t always come as easily. Chemists and process engineers found that many...

Researchers from the Chemistry Dept. at the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis; edlinks.che.com/6892-535) have discovered a new way to prepare monodisperse, discrete nanoparticles of silica with specific shapes, such as cubes, tetrapods and spheres. The shaped particles can be porous, and thus have enhanced surface areas, making them suitable for a number of "guest-host" applications, such as...
