Nickel Nanoparticles / Nanopowder

Ni nanoparticles in biomedical applications and as an antibacterial agent have been reported in the literature. These include drug and gene delivery, magnetic resonance imaging, cell separation, biomedical detection, and diagnostics. Guo et al. reported that functionally charged NiNPs could increase cell membrane permeability and promote cellular absorption into cancer cells of the outer target molecules.

Ni nanoparticles as a catalyst have appeared in several reports. Simonsen et al. reported that Ni nanoparticles can be used as catalysts in the separation of emulsions, separation, cleaning of the oil spills, purification of water, and the separation of impurities from samples. The important utility of Ni nanoparticles is due to their strong magnetic response as well as interfacial properties which play important role in the efficient adsorption and rapid separation.

Ni nanoparticles are good candidates for the adsorption of dyes. The removal of dyes from wastewater is crucial because organic dyes are major pollutants in wastewater. Organic dyes reduce the quality of water, thereby posing a significant impact on human health.

The electrodes showed low charge-transfer resistance, outstanding cycle stability, high specific capacitance, and good rate performance. The high capacitation of the electrode nanocomposite was due to enhanced conductivity, regularly scattered nanoparticles of Ni(OH)2, low interfacial resistance, and synergetic effects of each portion. They suggested the composite as a promising material for high-energy supercapacitor application with improved electrochemical performance.
