Understanding gold nanoparticle dissolution in cyanide-containing solution via impact-chemistry

Author affiliations

Abstract

The electrochemical dissolution of citrate-capped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) was studied in cyanide (CN) containing solutions. It was found that the gold nanoparticles exhibited different dissolution behaviours as ensembles compared to the single particles. At the single particle level, a nearly complete oxidation of 60 nm AuNPs was achieved at concentrations greater than or equal to 35.0 mM CN and at a potential of 1.0 V. Mechanistic insights and rate data are reported.
