|LTCC MICROFLUIDIC DEVICES APPLIED ON SYNTHESIS AND FUNCTIONALIZATION OF NANOPARTICLES|
|Keywords: LTCC, Gold Nanoparticles, Chemical Synthesis|
|Microfluidics has brought diverse advantages on chemical processes allowing higher control of reactions and economy of reagents and energy. Low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC) have additional advantages as material for microfluidics devices fabrication such as high compatibility with chemical reagents, low roughness and easy scaling and microfabrication. The conjugation of LTCC technology with microfluidics allows the development of micrometric sized channels and reactors exploiting the advantages of fast and controlled mixing and heat transfer processes, essential for the synthesis and surface functionalization of nanoparticles. Therefore, a cooperation has been established aiming the development of new microfluidic devices applied on synthesis and functionalization of gold nanoparticles that enables the development of nanomaterials with new and advanced functionalities. Accordingly, we are focused on the development, test and optimization of microfluidic systems design for synthesis of gold nanoparticles and multifunctionalization, in order to obtain monodispersed and multifunctional nanoparticles in highly reproducible processes. We are employing Turkevich Method where the final product is a is water- dispersible, biocompatible and reactive nanoparticle, so they are excellent for modification and application on posterior biological studies|
