Nickel (Ni) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are black spherical high surface area particles. Nanoscale Nickel Particles are typically 10 - 40 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30 - 50 m2/g range and also available in with an average particle size of 50 - 100 nm range with a specific surface area of approximately 5 - 10 m2/g. Nano Nickel Particles are also available in passivated and Ultra high purity and high purity and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a dispersion through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology. Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available.
Nickel Nanopowder / Nanoparticles is a black or grey powder composed of nickel particles ranging from 10 to 100 nanometers, this high surface area material shows extensive potential, with new applications being revealed by engineers and scientists with each passing year. Nickel nanoparticles has been used or researched as an additive, catalyst, electromagnetic shield, conductor, and more. As with other nanomaterials, nickel nanopowder can also be handled as a suspension in ethanol or other solvents. You can contact SSNano to find out more about our various sizes, coatings, and options for powdered or suspended nickel nanoparticles
Nickel nanopowder works well as a combustion catalyst for solid or liquid propellants, with research suggesting viability in a host of other combustive applications. While it’s largely been ignored in energetics due to a relatively low energy density, the potential for nickel has been revisited as research into nanopowders resurges, with newer studies and theories suggesting new possibilities for its role in fuel production.
Additive applications. The unique properties of nickel nanopowder have made it a popular additive in the manufacture of several different materials, including a variety of ceramics and lubricants. Nickel nanomaterials also work as an additive to aid in sintering of other materials.
Many of the most common applications of nickel nanomaterials involve electronics in some form or fashion. The material has been utilized as a component or manufacturing aid for capacitors, electrode terminations, electromagnetic shielding, metal base electrodes, conductive coatings and pastes, ferrofluids, and more.
