This paper presents a fully-continuous novel liquid-liquid-extraction (LLE) platform for the purification of nanoparticles. The use of multistage operation enhances the purity of the final stream without the expense of high solvent consumption. Two case studies, purification of CdSe quantum dots in organic solvent and that of gold nanoparticles in water, demonstrate that the LLE platform is versatile, non-destructive, and highly efficient.
