Mechanistic aspects of ligand exchange in Au nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ligand exchange reaction is a very important and useful tool for preparing functionalised metal nanoparticles. Understanding the mechanism of this process is essential for rational design of nanoparticle-based devices. However the underlying chemistry was found to be very rich. In this article, we summarise the research efforts of several groups to unravel the mechanisms of ligand exchange reaction, and discuss implications for future developments.
