General description

Zirconium(IV) oxide (ZrO2) which is also known as zirconia is a ceramic nanoparticle that can be used as a nano-filler. It can be incorporated in a variety of polymer and metal composites to improve the thermo-mechanical properties of the base material.


ZrO2 can be used as a filler material on PMMA which can further be used as a high strength denture base material. It can also be used as a composite based metallic coating that can improve the overall mechanical properties of the substrate.

Ni-P-nano-ZrO(2) coatings were produced using the electroless deposition technique. To prevent agglomeration of zirconia nanoparticles in the plating bath, various surfactant additives (anionic, cationic, and nonionic) were used. The most stable bath was obtained with the addition of dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide...

We established near-infrared (NIR)-light-triggered transdermal delivery systems by encapsulating NIR absorbers, silica-coated lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6@SiO2) nanostructures and the cargo molecule to be released in biodegradable polycaprolactone (PCL) microneedles. Acting as a local heat source when exposed to an NIR laser...
Hydrogen is one of the most important resources in providing food, fuel, and chemical products for our everyday life. Sustainable catalytic hydrogen production from bioethanol has gained significant attention in recent years due to globally diminishing fossil fuel supplies, which have necessitated the search for new chemical feedstocks.
