Growth kinetics of gold nanocrystals: a combined small-angle X-ray scattering and calorimetric study.


The growth of gold nanocrystals prepared by the reduction of tetrachloroauric acid by tetrakis(hydroxymethyl)phosphonium chloride, which allows slow reduction, is investigated by small-angle X-ray scattering and isothermal titration calorimetry in combination with transmission electron microscopy. The growth of the nanocrystals does not follow the diffusion… (More)
