Novel one-step synthesis of amine-stabilized aqueous colloidal gold nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate a simple one-step process for the synthesis of water-dispersed spherical gold nanoparticles using the multifunctional molecule oleyl amine (OLA) that electrostatically complexes with aqueous chloroaurate ions, reduces them, and subsequently caps the nanoparticles thus formed. The gold particles thus formed were of the fcc phase and were fairly monodisperse with particular concentrations of capping molecules.
