Attractive processing techniques for functional nanoparticle synthesis by thermal plasmas are reviewed. The advantages of thermal plasmas, such as high enthalpy, high chemical reactivity, and rapid quenching, bring the advances and demands in plasma processing for nanoparticle synthesis. Furthermore, thermal plasma processing for functional nanoparticle synthesis of oxides, nitrides, carbides, and intermetallic compounds is reviewed to clarify the functionalization and application. The nanoparticles prepared by thermal plasmas can be used for catalytic, magnetic, optical, and electronic application.
