Abstract: As nanoparticle syntheses in aqueous and organic systems have their own merits and drawbacks, specific applications may call for the transfer of newly formed nanoparticles from a polar to a non-polar environment (or vice versa) after synthesis. This critical review focuses on the application of phase transfer in nanoparticle synthesis, and features core-shell structures in bimetallic nanoparticles, replacement reactions in organic media, and catalytic properties of various nanostructures. It also describes the reversible organic and aqueous phase transfer of semiconductor and metallic nanoparticles for biological applications, and the use of phase transfer in depositing noble metals on semiconductor nanoparticles (258 references). © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
