Abstract

Spinning disc processing (SDP) is an instantaneously scalable, continuous flow and high throughput flash nanofabrication technology which embraces green chemistry metrics. It has been used to prepare silver nano-particles with remarkable control in size (5 - 200 nm), shape, surface characteristics, and phase (cubic versus hexagonal), along with imparting defects for particles > 10 nm diameters. The control is associated with changing the nature of the stabilising surfactant, the concentration of the reactants, flow rates, temperature and the nature of the rotating surface.
