NANOSTRUCTURE SYNTHESIS IN AQUEOUS MEDIA

Pp. 1-11 (11)

Abstract

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.

Keywords:

Stabilization, chemical reduction, colloid nanoparticles, surfactants.
