|Title:||Acetate stabilization of metal nanoparticles and its role in the preparation of metal nanoparticles in ethylene glycol||Authors:||Yang, J.
|Issue Date:||11-May-2004||Citation:||Yang, J., Deivaraj, T.C., Too, H.-P., Lee, J.Y. (2004-05-11). Acetate stabilization of metal nanoparticles and its role in the preparation of metal nanoparticles in ethylene glycol. Langmuir 20 (10) : 4241-4245. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1021/la0361159||Abstract:||Acetate-stabilized ruthenium nanoparticles were prepared by the NaBH 4 reduction of the metal precursor salt at room temperature, Nanoparticles with a mean diameter of 2.20 nm and a standard deviation of 1.03 nm could be obtained under experimental conditions. The Ru nanoparticles so obtained could be easily extracted to a toluene solution of alkylamine, giving rise to alkylamine-stabilized Ru nanoparticles with a mean diameter of 2.96 nm and a standard deviation of 0.92 nm, The new found role of acetate stabilization was used to formulate a mechanism for the formation of metal (Pt, Ru) nanoparticles in ethylene glycol. In this mechanism metal nanoparticles are stabilized in ethylene glycol by adsorbed acetate ions, which are produced as a product of the OH - catalyzed reaction between the metal precursor salt and ethylene glycol.||Source Title:||Langmuir||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/88495||ISSN:||07437463||DOI:||10.1021/la0361159|
