Synthesis of highly dispersed gold and silver nanoparticles anchored on surfactant intercalated montmorillonite.

Gold and silver nanoparticles anchored on surfactant intercalated montmorillonite were prepared by two methodologies. In the first case, gold and silver nanoparticles were synthesized by reduction of gold and silver salt in hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (HDTA) and dioctadecyldimethylammonium chloride (DODA), followed by exchange of HDTA and DODA… (More)
