Scholarcy highlights

  • The synthesis of nanomaterials, with characteristic dimensions of 1 to 100 nm, is a key component of nanotechnology
  • We present a broad review of progress in vapor-phase nanomaterial synthesis
  • We describe physically-based vapor-phase synthesis methods including inert gas condensation, spark discharge generation, and pulsed laser ablation; plasma processing methods including thermal- and non-thermal plasma processing; and chemically-based vapor-phase synthesis methods including chemical vapor condensation, flame-based aerosol synthesis, spray pyrolysis, and laser pyrolysis
  • We summarize the nanomaterials produced by each method, along with representative applications, and describe the synthesis of the most important materials produced by each method in greater detail
