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 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.
