About Ruthenium Oxide Nanoparticles / Nanopowder

High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMOxide IonRuthenium Oxide (RuO2) Nanopowder or Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanocrystals are spherical or faceted high surface area oxide magnetic nanostructured particles. Nanoscale Ruthenium Oxide Particles are typically 20-80 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 10 - 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 Ruthenium 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.

Ruthenium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of ruthenium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 15, 1] and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d7 5s1. The ruthenium atom has a radius of 134 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 207 pm. Ruthenium was discovered by J?drzej ?niadecki in 1807. It was first recognized as a distinct element by Karl Ernst Claus in 1844. Elemental RutheniumIn its elemental form, ruthenium has a silvery white metallic appearance. Ruthenium is a rare transition metal belonging to the platinum group of metals. It is found in pentlandite, pyroxenite, and platinum group metal ores. The name Ruthenium originates from the Latin word "Ruthenia," meaning Russia.
