Aluminium oxide nanopowder is an aluminium-based nanoparticle with properties that are highly desirable for applications in the field of nanotechnology. This nanopowder is used as a carrier and as a catalyst in a wide range of chemical processes.
Typical applications include paints, abrasives, ceramics, and composite materials. These materials are also widely used in the aerospace industry. They are resistant to wear and have a high corrosion resistance.
Nanosized aluminium oxide is formed in spherical or nearly spherical forms. The smallest particle diameter is less than 5 nm. Depending on the specific size and shape of the pores, the nanoparticles have different catalytic capabilities.
Gamma-phase aluminum oxide nanoparticles have specific applications in petrochemical engineering, chemical analysis, and microporous structure. These particles have great potential for industrial catalysts, ceramic membranes, and purification of petroleum products.
These particles are produced using a femtosecond laser synthesis. They can be controlled to have narrow particle size distribution and spherical shapes. In addition, they can be surface functionalized, allowing for preferential adsorption at the surface interface.
Alumina nanoparticles are highly stable and are capable of releasing dosages at programmed locations. Alumina particles are useful in the pharmaceutical industry, for the delivery of intravenous drug therapies in low pH. Additionally, they are beneficial in various branches of medicine.
As with any other type of nanomaterial, it is important to recognize the health and environmental risks associated with obtaining aluminium oxide nanopowder. In addition to the potential hazards, the aluminium-oxide nanopowder itself has the potential to enter the human body through the pores. Therefore, anyone who experiences skin irritation or a feeling of dizziness after handling a container of this material should seek medical attention.
