Abstract

This invention concerns a method for the ecompatible and inexpensive synthesis of zerovalent bimetallic nanomaterials. The synthesis is carried out by chemical reduction of metal salts and is promoted by the prereduction of a noble metal salt in catalytic concentrations. The method employs inexpensive and non toxic reductants, and does not need the use of degassed water and modified atmosphere.

Authors

Abstract

The invention refers to a method to improve the effectiveness of groundwater remediation techniques based on the injection of reactive micro- and nanoparticle suspensions. This method involves the controlled injection of a destabilizing agent to tune the spatial distribution of the particles into the aquifer and to optimize the use of the reactive material.
