Self-healing and self-organized gold nanoparticle films at a water/organic solvent interface

Balmes, Olivier LU ; Bovin, Jan-Olov LU and Malm, Jan-Olle LU (2006) In Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 6(1). p.130-134
Abstract
Gold nanoparticles (5 nm and 20 nm) have been synthesized and stabilized with mercaptoundecanol. These particles, although insoluble in water or common organic solvents, spread as a thin film at the liquid-liquid interface between a water phase and an organic phase. Films of these gold nanoparticles have been observed both by conventional transmission electron microscopy of deposited samples and by cryo-transmission electron microscopy of plunge-frozen samples. The film can be monolayered and extend over centimeter-sized areas. The particle films spontaneously re-assemble and self-organize at the interface when disrupted. This self-healing capacity of the film should make it possible to build a device for continuous production and... (More)
