A continuous flow polymeric micro reactor, fabricated using a negative photo resist SU-8 on a 10 × 10 cm PEEK (polyetheretherketone) substrate by standard UV lithography, was utilized to synthesize palladium nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy, Selected Area Electron Diffraction and X-ray Diffraction. The Pd nanoparticles synthesized in the micro reactor were found to have a narrower size distribution when compared with those obtained by the conventional batch process.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
