Nanophase Technologies Corp. recently announced the availability of a new line of high-purity zinc oxide nanoparticles primarily targeted for electronic, personal care and other applications requiring UV protection combined with a very high degree of transparency. The new product line provides essentially spherical zinc oxide nanoparticles that are approximately 20 nanometers and feature narrow particle size distributions while retaining their discrete non-aggregating properties. With this new line, Nanophase now offers zinc oxide nanoparticles in 60, 35 and 20 nanometer sizes. All product lines offer high particle and surface chemical purity and are manufactured to ISO-9001, USP and cGMP standards. "We believe that there are a variety of applications for these smaller nanocrystalline materials," stated Dr. Don Freed, Nanophase's vice-president of business development. "It has been demonstrated that different size nanoparticles of the same material may have distinctly different physical properties and behave differently in applications. We intend to expand our product offerings and plan to offer small versions of additional oxide products in the near future."
