Metallic nanoparticles have been the subject of intense research recently because of their catalytic properties, which may differ considerably from the bulk metal. As the free nanoparticles tend to aggregate and are difficult to handle in catalytic applications, colloidal carrier systems have been developed that encapsulate and stabilize the particles. 5] More recently, so-called smart carrier systems, such as thermosensitive microgels, have become the focus of research. These hybrids react on… CONTINUE READING
