Rosette-like nanoscale Au materials were simply prepared through one-pot reduction of the AuCl₄⁻ precursor by 2-thiopheneacetic acid (2-TAA) without extra surface capping ligands at room temperature. 2-TAA underwent polymerization into polythiophene derivatives while the AuCl₄⁻ precursor was simultaneously reduced into various Au nanostructures. In situ… CONTINUE READING
