Other applications of Fe(0) nanoparticles PDF Print E-mail

Beside unexceptionable reduction properties, the nanoparticles of zero-valent iron also exhibit excellent catalytic, magnetic (strong ferromagnetic material) and mechanical properties due to which they are, for example, used as a catalyst in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis of hydrocarbons, in the production of carbon nanotubes, in petrochemistry, in the production of magnetic fluids or as an admixture in powder metallurgy.
