CREATION OF NANO-POWDERS
FRITSCH GmbH successfully launched and established the new Planetary Ball Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line. With this comminution concept FRITSCH considers customer needs wanting to comminute small samples up into the nano-range (1 nm = 10-9 m).
So for example, the pharmaceutical industry is interested in the production of new medications with active ingredients in the nano scale. Active ingredients in the nano scale are absorbed by the human body much faster as conventional compounds; due to the better bioavailability it is possible to clearly reduce the dosage of medications. Despite less amounts of active ingredients the same therapeutic effects are achieved, but at the same time unwanted side effects are reduced. In the chemical industry nano particles are also demanded, since their enormously enlarged specific surface, demonstrate completely new catalytic attributes.
