Fabrication of color changeable polystyrene spheres decorated by gold nanoparticles and their label-free biosensing.

Abstract

A novel and simple method for gold nanoshell synthesis with controllable core and shell sizes is reported here. A new 'tree-shape' surfactant bis(amidoethyl-carbamoylethyl) octadecylamine (C18N3) was synthesized and used as the glue for the fast combination of gold nanoparticles and the subsequent gold shell outside. The functionalized polystyrene (PS… (More)
