In this area of research, we focus on production of nanoparticles of different materials (metals, metal-oxides and bio-minerals) with different sizes and morphology. We established a novel green nano-synthesis approach which is fast, cost effective and simple to produce a large quantities of controlled quasi-monodisperse  particles. Our aim is to produce the nanoparticles with a minimum hazardous impact on environment, especially regarding their potential applications as catalysis, photonics, sensors and biomedical. Our wet-chemical approach which inspired from the Leidenfrost effect divided in two ways of nanofabrication;

 

- Lab. in beaker (Synthesize of nanoparticles in microgram scale in beaker)

- Lab. in drop (Synthesize, coating and patterning of nanoparticles by drop)
