Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Co-Au Core-shell nanoparticles are synthesized by slowly reducing an organo-gold compound on pre-made cobalt seeds with a weak reducer at mild condition. For the first time, these core-shell nanoparticles are generated in non-polar solvent in a controlled manner. The formation theory of core-shell structure, especially the seed size effect, is addressed as well. These core-shell structures are confirmed with a wide range of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) methods, which includes routine TEM images, high resolution TEM, and z-contrast imaging. © 2005 Materials Research Society.
