Separating the wheat from the chaff: Cross-flow filtration is shown to be an effective method to remove particle by-products from, for example, silver nanowires. To quantify the effect of purification, number- and weight-average aspect ratios and a polydispersity index are defined, which borrow concepts of molecular weight distributions from polymer science.
