Two Growth Mechanisms of Thiol-Capped Gold Nanoparticles Controlled by Ligand Chemistry

Chen, Xuelian; Wei, Meng; Jiang, Shaohua; Förster, Stephan

Thiols play an important role in the synthesis of well-defined nanoparticles (NPs) with tailored properties, but their effects on the formation kinetics of NPs are still under investigation. Here, we used in situ small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)/UV–vis spectroscopy and time-dependent transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to elucidate the role of thiols…

Rapid synthesis of [Au25(Cys)18] nanoclusters via carbon monoxide in microfluidic liquid-liquid segmented flow system and their antimicrobial performance

Huang, He; Hwang, Gi Byoung; Wu, Gaowei; Karu, Kersti; Du Toit, Hendrik; Wu, Han; Callison, June; Parkin, Ivan P.; Gavriilidis, Asterios

Atomically precise thiolate-gold nanoclusters with well-defined structures attract attention for use in various applications. However, most of the recently reported synthetic methods rely on prolonged synthesis times (a few hours to days) in order to produce high purity materials with a single cluster size. Such extended synthesis times make these…

Single-step preparation of mono-dispersed sulfur nanoparticles for detention of copper

Shevchenko, Natalia; Steinhart, Milos; Tomšík, Elena

Application of sulfur nanoparticles results from biocompatibility, biodegradability, and non-toxicity of the shell that covers sulfur nanoparticles. However, to prepare uniform sulfur nanoparticles still remains a challenge; particularly in aqueous medium when the size of sulfur nanoparticles is not more than 20 nm. In the current work, the detailed investigation…

A Cross-Method Comparison of Sub-10 nm Nanoparticle Size Distribution

Yang, Ye; Liao, Suiyang; Luo, Zhi; Qi, Runzhang; Mac Fhionnlaoich, Niamh; Stellacci, Francesco; Guldin, Stefan

Accurate nanoparticle (NP) size determination is essential across research domains, with many functions in nanoscience and biomedical research being size-dependent. Although transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is capable of resolving a single NP down to the sub-nm scale, the reliable representation of entire populations is plagued by challenges in providing statistical…

An in situ SAXS investigation of the formation of silver nanoparticles and bimetallic silver–gold nanoparticles in controlled wet-chemical reduction synthesis

F. Garcia, Paulo R. A.; Prymak, Oleg; Grasmik, Viktoria; Pappert, Kevin; Wlysses, Wagner; Otubo, Larissa; Epple, Matthias; P. Oliveira, Cristiano L.

We present a study on the formation of silver (Ag) and bimetallic silver–gold (AgAu) nanoparticlesmonitored by in situ SAXS as well as by ex situ TEM, XRD and UV-vis analysis in a flow reactor at controlled reaction temperature. The formation mechanism of the nanoparticles is derived from the structural parameters…

A robust expectation-maximization method for the interpretation of small-angle scattering data from dense nanoparticle samples

Bakry, M.; Haddar, H.; Bun?u, O.

A robust method is presented for the resolution of small-angle scattering problems featuring a structure factor. It is based on the local monodisperse approximation and the expectation-maximization…

Typical experiment vs. in-cell like conditions in magnetic hyperthermia: Effects of media viscosity and agglomeration

Bruvera, I. J.; Actis, D. G.; Calatayud, M. P.; Mendoza Zélis, P.

Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be used to transform electromagnetic energy into heat in hyperthermic treatment of cancer and other thermally activated therapies. The MNPs heating efficiency depends strongly on the combination of the MNPs’ structural properties and environmental conditions. MNPs hyperthermic yield is usually studied in diluted suspensions, although, in…

Colloidal Solubility and Agglomeration of Apolar Nanoparticles in Different Solvents

Doblas, David; Kister, Thomas; Cano-Bonilla, Marina; González-García, Lola; Kraus, Tobias

We studied the concentration-dependent agglomeration of apolar nanoparticles in different solvents. Octanethiol-stabilized gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in evaporating liquid droplets were observed in situ using small-angle X-ray scattering. Concurrent analysis of liquid volume and particle agglomeration provided time-dependent absolute concentrations of free and agglomerated particles. All…

Combining Small-Angle X-ray Scattering and X-ray Powder Diffraction to Investigate Size, Shape and Crystallinity of Silver, Gold and Alloyed Silver-Gold Nanoparticles

Garcia, P. R. A. F.; Loza, K.; Daumann, S.; Grasmik, V.; Pappert, K.; Rostek, A.; Helmlinger, J.; Prymak, O.; Heggen, M.; Epple, M.; Oliveira, C. L. P.

The combination of simultaneous measurements of small and wide angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS–SWAXS) to investigate the overall size, shape, and crystallinity of silver nanoparticles and alloyed silver-gold nanoparticles in the size range of 8 to 80 nm is shown. The obtained results for overall size are in agreement with the…
