Metallic Nano Structures Chapter 4

Polydisperse Mixture of Gold Nano-Particles

Authors: E. Vicuña, O. Viera, J.G. Briano, M. Castro, R. Irizarry, and L. Sola

Affilation: University of Puerto Rico, United States

Pages: 191 - 194

Keywords: colloids, metallic particles, polydisperse mixture

Colloids synthesized in water media, usually from direct reduction of a salt, always exhibit a size distribution, which may be characterized by TEM or SEM measurements. These are in essence polydisperse systems with a dispersion that cannot be established by just observing the extinction spectrum.
