Ultra-Simple Method For Creating Nanoscale Gold Coatings

Monolayer films of gold nanoparticles can be fabricated using a toluene droplet without using any sophisticated instruments. Synthesis of dodecanethiolate-protected gold nanoparticles is fast, reproducible, and 1 nm size-tunable without any post-synthesis cleaning. Credit: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
