About Sulfur Nanoparticles / Nanopowder

High Purity, D50 = +10 nanometer (nm) by SEMSulfur Nanopowder, nanodots or nanoparticles are typically 10 - 45 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30 - 50 m2/g range and also available in with an average particle size of 75 - 100 nm range with a specific surface area of approximately 2 - 10 m2/g. Nano Sulfur Particles are also available in passivated and Ultra high purity and high purity 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. Gold Nanoparticles and Carbon Nanoparticles have found novel application in cancer treatment using radio waves to heat and destroy a tumor, lymphoma, or metastasized cancer. Recent discoveries confirm the feasibility of this technology in humans. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

Related Elements

See more Sulfur products. Sulfur (or Sulphur) (atomic symbol: S, atomic number: 16) is a Block P, Group 16, Period 3 element with an atomic radius of 32.066. Sulfur Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Sulfur's shells is 2, 8, 6 and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p4. In its elemental form, sulfur has a light yellow appearance. The sulfur atom has a covalent radius of 105 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 180 pm. In nature, sulfur can be found in hot springs, meteorites, volcanoes, and as galena, gypsum, and epsom salts. Sulfur has been known since ancient times but was not accepted as an element until 1777, when Antoine Lavoisier helped to convince the scientific community that it was an element and not a compound.
