Gold egg in box for innovative catalyses

12 Jul, 2010

This research was conducted by
Ajayan Vinu & Katsuhiko Ariga

A simple and facile approach for the fabrication of gold nanoparticles with a tunable size inside the confined nanoporous matrix, without any size controlling or stabilizing or reducing agent, has been developed for the first time.
