About Scandium Nanoparticles

High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMScandium (Sc) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are spherical or nanoflake high surface area metal particles with properties and uses that include inhibiting transmission of HIV and other viruses. Nanoscale Scandium Particles are available in the size range of 10-200 nm, with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30-60 m2/g range and also available as flakes with an average particle size of  2-10 micron range with a specific surface area of approximately 40-80 m2/g. Nano Scandium Particles are also available in Ultra high purity and high purity, coated, oleic oil-coated, dispersed, and polymer-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 Scandium products. Scandium (atomic symbol: Sc, atomic number: 21) is a Block D, Group 3, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 44.955912. The number of electrons in each of Scandium's shells is [2, 8, 9, 2] and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d1 4s2. Scandium Bohr Model The scandium atom has a radius of 162 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 216 pm.Scandium was predicted by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1871 and actually discovered and isolated by Lars Nilson in 1879. One of the transition metals, scandium has a silvery-white appearance in its elemental form which oxidizes to yellow or pinkish upon contact with air. Elemental ScandiumIt is occasionally included in the classification of the rare earth elements. Scandium is found in concentrated amounts in the minerals euxenite, gadolinite and thortveitite however, due to the difficulties in the preparation of metallic scandium, global trade of the pure metal is very limited. The origin of the name scandium comes from the Latin word 'scandia' meaning Scandinavia.
