Research output: Patent


A method of making boron oxide nanoparticles. The method can comprise sonochemically treating a composition comprising a boron oxide to form boron oxide nanoparticles. The method allows for the formation of these nanoparticles from non-toxic, inexpensive reagents and ambient reaction conditions. Additionally, the nanoparticles produced by the teachings described herein can be easily surface functionalized.
