High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMP-MITE™ powders and dispersions are Platinum (Pt) nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder. Nanoscale Platinum Particles are typically 10 - 100 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) up to 45 m 2 /g. These nanospheres are ideal candidates as a novel technology for low platinum automotive catalysts and for single-nanotechnology research. Nano Platinum Particles are also available in Ultra high purity and high purity and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a nanofluid through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology. Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

Development research is underway in Nano Electronics and Photonics materials, such as MEMS and NEMS, Bio Nano Materials, such as Biomarkers, Bio Diagnostics & Bio Sensors, and Related Nano Materials, for use in Polymers, Textiles, Fuel Cell Layers, Composites and Solar Energy materials. Nanopowders are analyzed for chemical composition by ICP, particle size distribution (PSD) by laser diffraction, and for Specific Surface Area (SSA) by BET multi-point correlation techniques. Novel nanotechnology applications also include Quantum Dots. High surface areas can also be achieved using solutions and using thin film by sputtering targets and evaporation technology using pellets, rod and foil.. Applications for Platinum nanocrystals include numerous uses in catalysts (including catalytic converters), electrocatalysts, chemical synthesis (also in silver-platinum nanoparticles) and as a Magnetic Nanopowder (also in iron-platinum nanoparticles) and deposed on silica and carbon nanotubes, in polymer membranes to create Active Polymer Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells and in other coatings, plastics, nanofiber and textiles and in nanowire and other catalysis applications. Platinum Nano Particles are generally immediately available in most volumes. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available.

Platinum (Pt) atomic and molecular weight, atomic number and elemental symbolPlatinum (atomic symbol: Pt, atomic number: 78) is a Block D, Group 10, Period 6 element with an atomic weight of 195.084. Platinum Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of platinum's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 17, 1] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d9 6s1. The platinum atom has a radius of 139 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 175 pm. Platinum was discovered and first isolated by Antonio de Ulloa in 1735. Elemental PlatinumIt is one of the rarest elements in the earth's crust, occurring at a concentration of only 0.005 ppm. Platinum is found uncombined as a free element and alloyed with iridium as platiniridium. In its elemental form, platinum has a grayish white appearance. It is highly resistant to corrosion: the metal does not oxidize in air at any temperature. It is generally non-reactive, even at high temperatures. The origin of the name "platinum" comes from the Spanish word "platina," meaning silver.
