Chechik, V. (2004) Reduced reactivity of aged Au nanoparticles in ligand exchange reactions. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 126 (25). pp. 7780-7781. ISSN 0002-7863
Solutions of alkanethiol-protected Au nanoparticles undergo a slow aging process over a period of several days, which dramatically reduces their reactivity in a place-exchange reaction with disulfides. This behavior was tentatively attributed to the reorganization of the most reactive binding sites (e.g., defect sites) on the nanoparticle surface.
