Controlled Light-Mediated Preparation of Gold Nanoparticles by a Norrish Type I Reaction of Photoactive Polymers.

Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are subjects of broad interest in scientific community due to their promising physicochemical properties. Herein we report the facile and controlled light-mediated preparation of gold nanoparticles through a Norrish type I reaction of photoactive polymers. These carefully designed polymers act as reagents for the photochemical… CONTINUE READING
