A revised view of Brust-Schiffrin metal nanoparticle syntheses is presented here. Precursor species of these reactions are identified and quantified for Au, Ag, and Cu systems. Contrary to the assumptions of previous reports, tetraalkylammonium metal complexes are shown to be precursors of the two-phase reactions, whereas M(I) thiolates are shown to be precursors of the one-phase reactions. A new scheme is outlined for the two-phase synthesis, and the implications of this scheme are discussed… CONTINUE READING
