Reports from Sandia National Laboratories Advance Knowledge in Oxides (Nanoparticle Triaminotrinitrobenzene Fabricated by Carbon Dioxide Assisted Nebulization with a Bubble Dryer)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Oxides. According to news originating from Albuquerque, New Mexico, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Carbon dioxide assisted nebulization with a bubble dryer (CAN-BD) was used to reformulate TATB, a notoriously insoluble material, into nanoparticles."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Sandia National Laboratories, "The method is reproducible and produces particles consistently in the range of 100-400 nm with a mean of approx. 228 nm."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Chemical analyses of the material do not indicate any decomposition or degradation of the TATB resulting from the process, and there does not appear to be any measurable amount of residual solvent or other impurities in the particles."
