This study examined the synthesis of gold nanoparticles with pluronic® F127NF and KAuCl4 in water under non-classical conditions. The gold nanoparticle products were well dispersed in water and characterized by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The reaction time for the synthesis was investigated by monitoring the change in color and the peak of the UV-vis spectra under microwave conditions. The gold nanoparticles were used as a catalyst for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol with NaBH4. The resulting product was confirmed by UV-vis spectroscopy and liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy.
