Green microfluidic synthesis of monodisperse silver nanoparticles via genetic algorithm optimization
2016 (English)In: RSC Advances, ISSN 2046-2069, E-ISSN 2046-2069, Vol. 6, no 98, 95693-95697 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A scalable and green procedure for the microfluidic flow synthesis of monodisperse silver nanoparticles is reported. Beetroot extract is used both as a reducing and growth-regulating agent. A multi-objective genetic algorithm was used to automate the optimization of the reaction and reduce sample polydispersity observed in previous reports. The proposed methodology ensures high-quality nanoparticles in a rapidly manner and devoid of human skill or intuition, essential for method standardization and implementation.
