Stable suspensions of gold nanoparticles in water were prepared with high yield by a novel one-step ultrasound assisted electrochemical process. Various strategies based on the addition of either tailor-made polymers or mixtures of commercially available polymers, in the electrochemical bath have been found successful to avoid nanoparticles aggregation commonly observed by sonoelectrochemistry. alpha-Methoxy-omega-mercapto-poly(ethylene oxide) or poly(vinyl pyrrolidone)/polyethylene oxide… CONTINUE READING
