We report an efficient synthesis route for the formation of gold/silver-core⁻PE-shell nanohybrids in a simple self-assembly approach using PE with strong aurophilicity and argentophilicity, via thiol- and trithiocarbonate terminated moieties. This united the unique properties of polyethylene (PE) with gold and silver nanoparticles, using the well-defined end-group design of PE. These nanocomposites showed a similar solubility as PE, as confirmed by dynamic light scattering, and could be fully… CONTINUE READING
