Strong negative nanocatalysis: oxygen reduction and hydrogen evolution at very small (2 nm) gold nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The electron transfer kinetics associated with both the reduction of oxygen and of protons to form hydrogen at gold nanoparticles are shown to display strong retardation when studied at citrate capped ultra small (2 nm) gold nanoparticles. Negative nanocatalysis in the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is reported for the first time.
