Nanotechnology Challenge in Mechanochemistry

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


Grinding a solid causes its mechanical activation, enabling us to increase surface area with rupturing the bonds. There have been many investigations on its relevant phenomena on various materials since last few 10. years, and most of them are related to physicochemical changes of solids due to structural change, syntheses with chemical reactions connecting with surface phenomena. This kind of science is called mechanochemistry, applied not always to achieve chemical reaction of solids. However, it has a potential to control or assist the chemical reaction of solids, facilitating the subsequent materials processing.
