Synthesis of bimetallic gold–silver alloy nanoclusters by simple mortar grinding

Author affiliations

Abstract

A macroscale quantity of bimetallic Au–Ag alloy nanoclusters was achieved through sequential reduction by simple mortar grinding. The chitosan biopolymer was used as both a stabilizing and reducing agent. These nanoclusters exhibit excellent catalytic activity toward the reduction of 4-nitrophenol.
