Directing oxidation of cobalt nanoparticles with the capping ligand.


The oxidation of Co nanoparticles stabilized with various ligands has been studied in an autoclave. Tridodecylamine stabilized Co nanoparticles with different sizes (8 nm, 22 nm and 36 nm) were prepared by thermal decomposition of Co(2)(CO)(8) in dodecane. The oxidation of the particles was studied by introducing oxygen into the autoclave and following the… (More)
