Size-, and Shape-Selective Synthesis of Platinum Nanoparticles from Pt(-Diketonate)2 Complexes in Organic Media
Abstract:Preparation of platinum nanoparticles from two -diketonate complexes of platinum, Pt(hfac)2 and Pt(acac)2 (hfac: hexafluoroacetylacetonate, acac: acetylacetonate) in organic media will be presented in the contribution. Nearly spherical, well-dispersed platinum nanoparticles were fabricated by thermally-induced reduction of Pt(hfac)2 in the presence of teraalkylammonium salts as the stabilizing agents in several organic solvents. Particle sizes ranging from 9 to 15 nm can be controlled by variation of the surfactant, the concentrations of precursor and surfactant, as well as reaction temperature. Heating the solution of Pt(acac)2 complex in 1-octanol at appropriate temperatures provided the platinum nanocubes and the influence of reaction temperature on the particle shape was investigated.
