Silver Azide Nanoparticles Embedded into Silica as Energetic Nano-materials
Keywords:silver azide, silica, nanoparticles, biotin
Silver azide is a primary high explosive that can be initiated by different means. In this work, silver azide nanoparticles were obtained, embedded into silica, and further derivatized with biotin. TEM, DLS, and IR measurements were used to characterize the hybrid energetic nanoparticles. The hybrid nanoparticles are made from an explosive core (silver azide) and a shell (silica), to which has been attached through an organic linker a biological target vectot (biotin).These hybrid nanoparticles can be used as models to study smart energetic nano-materials.
