Nanoparticles in Confined Structures: Formation and Application

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Current approaches to the synthesis of nanoparticles in confined structures are described. The syntheses of inorganic and organic nanoparticles in nanometric confined structures, such as reverse micelles, water-in-oil and oil-in-water microemulsions, water-in-supercritical liquid microemulsions, micelles of amphiphilic block copolymers, miniemulsions, dendrimers, polymeric capsules, pore channels of mesoporous solids and nanoporous membranes and liquid crystals are discussed. Examples of practical applications of the nanoparticles obtained are presented.
