General information



Our nanoparticles are well suited for many applications and are mainly supplied as a hydrophilic powder that can be easily suspended in aqueous solutions.

Phosphonic acids

Alkylphosphonic acids are perfect hydrophobization ligands, owing to their classical bifunctional chemical structure. They contain an non-polar organic hydrophobic alkyl chain and an active hydrophilic phosphonic acid group. These molecules are capable to strongly bind to the surface of different inorganic materials (SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, FexOy, ZrO2, ZnS etc.) forming a selfassembled coating layer. Phosphonic acids can also be used as ligands for the synthesis of nanoparticles to control the size and hydrophobic properties of the particles. Further they are well soluble in non-polar and many polar solvents. The acids are also soluble in water (especially upon addition of alkali) at lower concentrations.
