Abstract

Two series of silicate glasses were processed to micron-size, sub-micron size, and nanoparticles using three different milling systems: ball milling, attrition, and high-energy milling. The effect of milling time and media size on particle size and contamination were investigated in aqueous and isopropanol suspensions. The particle size was determined using a laser-diffraction particle size analyzer and scanning electron microscopy. The smallest glass particles with a median particle size of 0.3 μm were achieved by a two-step comminution process in a high energy mill.
