Silica Nanoparticles

Glantreo’s proprietary platform process for the synthesis of nanoparticles has been developed over the last 12 years. The process produces scalable, durable and reproducible materials. All porous particles can be functionalised upon request.

Applications that our nano silica particles have been used for include:

  • Chromatography
  • Drug Delivery
  • Encapsulation of natural oils, flavours and heat sensitive additives
  • Catalysis
Types of nano silica particles manufactured:

  • Porous particles
  • Non-porous particles
