Title: Phase I Final Report for Precision Nanoparticles for High Performance Devices

Abstract

The goal of this work is to commercialize a process to synthesize magnetic nanoparticles through supercritical fluid (SCF), employing the precision nanoparticle technology developed at Idaho National Laboratory and Idaho State University. Compared to traditional methods—including attrition, pyrolysis, and hydrothermal synthesis—SCF offers a more environmentally friendly, cost‐competitive process for producing nanoparticles. By exposing single‐source precursors (SSPs)—molecules containing elements connected by a single chemical bond—to a supercritical solvent, researchers at Idaho National Laboratory and Idaho State University have developed a process to produce uniform nanoparticles at desired sizes ranging from 1 nm to 100 nm (+/‐ 0.2nm). The goal of this Phase I effort was to successfully synthesize 60‐nm ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles using a single‐source precursor through SCF, to evaluate the scalability of the method and to determine if it is a practical method for the large‐scale synthesis of spinel ferrite nanoparticles.
