Reducing Agent Calculator for Nanoparticles Synthesis
M.W. of Reducing Agent (g/mol)
M.W. of Precursor (g/mol)
Weight of Precursor (g)
Percentage of Reduction You Want (%)
Final particles size of synthesized Nanoparticles not only depend on the Reducing Agent, but also depends on the factors like Capping Agent, Stabilizing Agent, Amount of Solvent used, Temperature and pH etc.
STEP1: Enter the Molecular Weight (M.W.) of Reducing Agent, for example Hydrazine Hydrate is having molecular weight of 32 g/mol.
STEP2: Enter the Molecular Weight (M.W.) of Precursor, for example Nickel Nitrate is having molecular weight of 182.7 g/mol.
STEP3: Enter the weight of the precursor you have taken in grams, for example 1g.
STEP4: Enter the Percentage (%) of Reduction you want, for example you want to reduce 50, 100, 200 percent of Nickel Nitrate.
NOTE: We recommend you to use Hydrazine Hydrate as Reducing Agent for Nanoparticles synthesis. Use 10% diluted Hydrazine Hydrate for better results.
