NANOSTRUCTURE SYNTHESIS IN AQUEOUS MEDIA
Pp. 1-11 (11)
In this chapter the main experimental methods used for the synthesis of metal nanostructures in
aqueous colloidal form are considered. For convenience, consideration was made separately for noble
metals and magnetic metals, even the most of methods are generally common for both groups. While the
chemical reduction of metal ions still remains the main method for such synthesis, laser ablation in water
solutions as well as combinations of these two methods became more and more popular, and can bring
more promising results in the nearest future.
Stabilization, chemical reduction, colloid nanoparticles, surfactants.
