Reducing Agent Calculator for Nanoparticles Synthesis

Reducing Agent Calculator for Nanoparticles Synthesis

Reducing Agent M.W.

Precursor M.W.

Precursor Weight (g)

Reduction (in %)


Results

g


Final particles size of synthesized Nanoparticles not only depend on the Reducing Agent, but also depends on the factors like Capping Agent, Stabilizing Agent, Amount of Solvent used, Temperature and pH etc.

Calculation Tutorial:

STEP1: Enter the Molecular Weight (M.W.) of Reducing Agent, for example Hydrazine Hydrate is having molecular weight of 32 g/mol.

STEP2: Enter the Molecular Weight (M.W.) of Precursor, for example Nickel Nitrate is having molecular weight of 182.7 g/mol.

STEP3: Enter the weight of the precursor you have taken in grams, for example 1g.

STEP4: Enter the Percentage (%) of Reduction you want, for example you want to reduce 50, 100, 200 percent of Nickel Nitrate.

NOTE: We recommend you to use Hydrazine Hydrate as Reducing Agent for Nanoparticles synthesis. Use 10% diluted Hydrazine Hydrate for better results.

  2. Daer Sir,
    Please give me some issues problem...Answers...?
    1 Que.- what about the molecular weight taken in of perticular plant leaf /stem/flowers/roots extracts which is used as whole for metal nanoparticle synthesis...?
    2 Que.- Im synthesizing agno3 nanoparticles by green synthesis, so used in water as a solvent for synthesis and used reducing agent as plant leaf /stem/flowers/roots extracts....and then synthesizing NPS, how to dry the liguid solution of Ag-Nps...for futher charecterization..Eg. FTIR, TEM -samples.
    Thanks for your cooperation.
    Sanjay
