J Nanosci Nanotechnol. 2014 Mar;14(3):2217-24.Poly(gamma-cyclodextrin) (PgammaCyD)-protected ZrO2 nanocolloids were prepared by using a microwave reactor equipped with ultrasonic nozzle mixing at 240 degrees C for 30 min in a tetraethylene glycol solution of zirconium (IV) ethoxide in the presence of poly(gamma-cyclodextrin). Particles in PgammaCyD-protected ZrO2 nanocolloids have an average diameter of 7.2 nm and mainly distribute within the range of about 3 to 10 nm. Read More
