With the rapid development of nanotechnology, it is now possible to prepare nanoparticles with controllable shape and size. Nanoprism is a kind of nanomaterial with prismatic morphology and is composed of nano-flakes. Since the launch of a series of nanoprisms a few months ago, Alfa Chemistry has been undertaking to upgrade this product line. This move is purposed to extend its offering range to silver nanoprisms, gold nanoprisms, copper nanoprisms and TiO2 nanoprisms, for customers across the globe.

With methods like electron beam printing and focused ion beam printing, nanoparticles can be formed into a variety of nanostructures including spherical, rod-shaped, flakes-shaped, shell, tetrahedron, hexagon, star, prism and the others. All these advances and technology breakthroughs make the production of nanoprisms much easier.

Owing to their excellent optical and chemical properties, nanoprisms have a wide range of applications in many fields such as biological imaging, biosensor, biomolecule and inorganic ion detection, optical sensor, etc.

“Committed to consistent quality and execution, researchers at Alfa Chemistry have developed dozens of high-quality nanoprisms, including but not limited to:

About Applications of Nanoprisms
Having tunable optical properties, nanoprisms are very helpful to biological imaging, which is an important means to understand the structure of organisms and elucidate various physiological functions of organisms. In addition to that, nanoprisms can be well used as photothermal molecules in photodynamic therapy as a novel and effective treatment to cure cancer. Moreover, nanoprisms also play an important role in the development of new energy sources. Studies also found that nanoprisms are widely used in many other fields such as ion detection, biosensors, optical sensors, etc.
