Context: A recent study has shown that new nanostructures system can be used to solve environmental problems and the weakness of renewable energy source.

Ternary Nanoparticles

  • Ternary nanoparticles are nanoparticles composed of three different types of materials or elements and they are suspended in a base fluid.
  • These nanoparticles consist of a combination of three distinct components, which can be metals, metal oxides, semiconductors, or other materials.
    • The term “ternary” indicates the presence of three components in the nanoparticle’s composition.

Properties of Ternary Nanoparticles

  • It exhibit a range of unique properties that arise from the combination of three different materials or elements.
  • The ternary nanoparticle is made up of biological materials such as carboxymethyl cellulose polymer.
  • Ternary nanoparticles offer the ability to fine-tune the composition by adjusting the relative ratios of the three components.
  • This allows researchers to tailor the properties of the nanoparticles to meet specific requirements
  • Ternary nanoparticles can exhibit improved stability compared to their binary counterparts.
  • Ternary nanoparticles can possess multiple functionalities due to the combination of different materials.
  • Ternary nanoparticles often exhibit interesting optical properties, such as enhanced absorption or emission spectra, due to the interaction between different components.
  • Ternary nanoparticles can be synthesized with precise control over their size, shape, and morphology.
  • The ternary nanocomposite films are flexible, exhibit high tensile strength, stiffness, and toughness.

Applications Ternary Nanoparticles

  • These are employed as catalysts in various chemical reactions.
  • Ternary nanoparticles are used in energy storage and conversion devices.
  • These with specific optical and electronic properties are utilized in photovoltaic devices such as solar cells also used in light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photodetectors, and displays.
  • It is employed in biomedical imaging techniques, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and fluorescence imaging.
  • These are used as carriers for controlled and targeted drug delivery.
  • Ternary nanoparticles are explored for environmental applications, such as water purification and air pollution control.
  • Ternary nanocomposites can be used in electronics, energy storage, catalysis, sensors, coatings, and biomedical engineering.
