A NEW HYDROSOL OF GOLD CLUSTERS .1. FORMATION AND PARTICLE-SIZE VARIATION

Abstract:

Aqueous reduction of hydrogen tetrachloroaurate(III) with alkaline tetrakis(hydroxymethyl)phosphonium chloride yields gold in an ultrafinely divided form as a stable colloidal hydrosol, with mean metal-cluster diameter between 1 and 2 nm, without the need for large organic stabilizing molecules. The ultraviolet-visible extinction spectrum is very similar to those of other gold colloids of similar dimensions and includes a weak plasmon feature. Dispersions with characteristics of yet finer clu...
