Synthesis, assembly and reaction of a nanocatalyst in microfluidic systems: a general platform.

We present a successive microfluidic approach to create and characterize hierarchical catalyst structures consisting of metal-decorated nanoparticles that are assembled into porous microparticles ("supraball" catalysts). First, using a silicon microreactor, platinum nanoparticles with a very narrow size distribution are grown and immobilized uniformly onto… CONTINUE READING
