Obtaining of core-shell ZnO nanoparticles on glass surfaces
The fast nucleation rate of the nanoparticles during a synthesis leads to aggregation, loss of desired morphology, and properties. In this case, the usage of stabilizers such as polymer brushes could be useful. After achieving purposeful characteristics of the nanoparticles like size, crystallinity, or dimension we consider their incorporation onto a substrate surface. Incorporation of crystalline nanoparticles onto a surface through chemical bonding is a promising way to functionalize surface with equally distributed particles.
