Textured surfaces as a new platform for nanoparticle synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a new, surface-based microfluidic platform for the synthesis of nanoparticles. In this platform chemical reagents are carried in separate droplets, then mixed and later transported to a desired location on the surface using surface textured ratchet tracks. This brings the advantages of both synthesizing and transporting nanoparticles in situ without having cross-contamination between samples and addressing each sample independently. This platform is also capable of carrying multiple synthesis reactions concurrently.
