JACS paper!

Under leadership of Akihiro Uehara a combined electrochemical/X-ray absorption spectroscopy study deconstructing the famous Brust-Schiffrin synthesis of gold nanoparticles has been carried out. The results elucidates some of the transformations taking place during this two-phase synthesis. The results show that the reaction at the oil-water interface includes a time dependent evolution of the Au(I) species …
