Green Method to Make Nanoparticles and Ultrafine Powder

A novel freeze-dissolving approach has been devised that offers greater efficiency and sustainability compared to the classic freeze-drying process to make superfine powder or nanoparticles.​​​​​​​ In the research published in the journal ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, sphere-shaped [...]
