Nickel Spheres

As nickel is a common magnetic material, it can be used in magnetic applications such as printable magnetic drives or bioseparation. In addition, as nickel is also a common hydrogenation catalyst, these particles could have potential as a bi-functional material. For instance, for use as recyclable catalysts.

Boutiq’s nickel nanoparticles are made of magnetic material, and come in a variety of shapes: from spherical or pseudo-cubic shapes to branched particles. As the magnetic properties can change with shape: from non-magnetic, to superparamagnetic and even ferromagnetic, these particles can be applied to a variety of applications. Please contact us in regards to your interest and relevant application, as these products are best customised.
