Microwave Synthesis (Milestone Microwave Synthesis Lab station)


Microwave Synthesis is used to synthesize nano materials in minutes of time, using microwave irradiation it is possible to synthesize nanoparticles with exact parameter control in a short time and also change particle properties and particle size as required. The fields of application for these produced nanoparticles range from medical uses (drug delivery systems, formulations) to use in many industries, i.e. vehicle manufacturing (coatings, windshields, energy storage), cosmetics (sun protection, shampoo, toothpaste), textile production (outdoor clothing, shoes) and electronics (circuit boards, solar cells, LEDs, touchscreens). In this last field of application, quantum dots (QD) are often the focus of research.
