About Niobium Oxide Nanoparticles / Nanopowder

High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMNiobium Oxide (Nb2O5) Nanopowder, Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanocrystals are spherical or faceted high surface area oxide magnetic nanostructured particles. Nanoscale Niobium Oxide Particles are typically 20-100 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 25 - 50 m2/g range and also available in with an average particle size of 100 nm range with a specific surface area of approximately 7- 10 m2/g. Nano Niobium Oxide Particles are also available in ultra high purity and high purity, transparent, and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a dispersion 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.

Related Elements

See more Niobium products. Niobium (atomic symbol: Nb, atomic number: 41) is a Block D, Group 5, Period 5 element with an atomic weight of 92.90638. Niobium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of niobium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 12, 1 and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d4 5s1. The niobium atom has a radius of 146 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 207 pm. Niobium was discovered by Charles Hatchett in 1801 and first isolated by Christian Wilhelm Blomstrand in 1864. In its elemental form, niobium has a gray metallic appearance. Niobium has the largest magnetic penetration depth of any element and is one of three elemental type-II superconductors (Elemental Niobiumalong with vanadium and technetium). Niobium is found in the minerals pyrochlore, its main commercial source, and columbite. The word Niobium originates from Niobe, daughter of mythical Greek king Tantalus.
