This paper studies the UV-vis absorbance of colloidal gold nanoparticles at 400 nm and validates it as a method to determine Au(0) concentrations in colloidal gold solutions. The method is shown to be valid with restrictions depending on the investigated system. The uncertainty of the determined Au(0) concentration can be up to 30%. This deviation is the(More)
A large number of scientific contributions is dedicated to syntheses, characterization and applications of metal nanoparticles. In contrast, only few studies on their formation mechanisms have been reported. In general, concepts to describe particle growth processes are rare. Commonly used models are not able to explain the influences of reaction parameters(More)
