Surface Area to Volume of Nanoparticles
28 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Manuel Cassilas, NNCI Nano
This two part lesson is designed to help students understand how nanoparticles may be more effective catalysts by investigating how the surface area-to-volume ratio of a substance is affected as its shape and size changes. This lab is meant to complement a chemistry unit on catalysts....

15 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Paul Longwell, Chantelle Smith, Stephen Stillanos, NNCI Nano
This lesson is designed to engage students in hands-on experiments that explore nanoscale propulsion principles and guide students in recognizing and analyzing differences between macroscale and nanoscale propulsion systems.
How Catalysts Work - A Nanoscale Phenomenon
13 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Manueal Casillas, NNCI Nano
This activity helps students understand how catalysts work on the nanoscale. Catalyst are more efficient when on the nanoscale because of the large amount of surface area in comparison to volume. This is a great way to introduce or review reactants, catalysts, and adsorption, desorption, and...
