In situ coating of diatom frustules with silver nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Diatom frustules decorated with silver nanoparticles between 10 and 20 nm in diameter, are accessible at room temperature under basic conditions using glucose as a reducing agent and without the need of linking agents. The process is sensitive to both pH and the time elapsed after plasma cleaning prior to decoration.
