I am a chemistry masters student, currently researching CO2 conversion to fuels and chemicals, I am looking in particular at iron oxide nanoparticles to be used as a catalyst in the Reverse Water Gas Shift reaction, this requires the catalyst to be in the form of a solid, not in aqueous phase. As most nanoparticles are synthesised in aqueous solution, would the morphology and structure of the nanoparticles be impacted by removing them from the solution. The synthesis method being considered is co-precipitation.

Awesome.  If you have a peer-reviewed reference for this process, go for it.  This is an esoteric procedure, we may have an expert here to help you, but probably not.  Just bear that in mind.

Seems clear.

I don't know how true that is, the could be made in a solvent solution, or by condensing a gas, or grinding a solid, as examples.

Possibly.  Or possibly not.

More specifics would help.

That all depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be.  I just want my friends back, except for Cartman, you can keep him.
