Direct electrochemical detection and sizing of silver nanoparticles in seawater media

Abstract

We report proof-of-concept measurements relating to the impact of nanoparticles with an electrode potentiostatted at a value corresponding to the diffusion controlled oxidation of silver nanoparticles in authentic seawater media. The charge associated with the oxidation reveals the number of atoms in the nanoparticle and thus its size and state of aggregation.
