Researchers Study Behavior of Cerium Dioxide Nanoparticles

Researchers used X-rays beams of the European Synchrotron ESRF to find out the nature of nanoparticles in a solution of water and ethanol. The team of researchers noticed that the electrons released by the nanoparticles of cerium dioxide did not combine together to form a single atom.

On analyzing their behavior, researchers declared that nanoparticles change their behavior under vacuum. It has also been observed by the researchers that the electrons move like clouds and distribute themselves across the whole of nanoparticle.
