Place exchange reactions of gold nanoparticles

The kinetics and mechanism of the place exchange reaction(PER) of alkylthiols with alkylthiol-protected gold nanoparticles(AuNP) are investigated. Using chemically similar alkylthiols it was possible to study the reaction in the absence of perturbing factors, enabling detailed mechanistic and kineti...
