Paper Title:
Shape and Size Dependent Melting Point Temperature of Nanoparticles
  Abstract

The present paper reports a simple calculation of the size and shape dependent melting temperature of nanoparticles. The melting temperature of any nanoparticle basically depends on the ratio of surface atoms to the total atoms. Significant melting temperature suppression is observed when the particle size approaches the sub-20 nm range. The behavior of melting temperature is similar for the larger nanoparticles of all considered shapes but differs significantly for small nanoparticles. Different melting temperature is predicted for the nanoparticles of the same size in different shapes.
