New Insights on controlling nanoparticle stability

Beverly Smith's and Jim Hutchison's paper published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C (27 November 2013) studying the structure of ligand-stabilized gold nanoparticles have captured fundamental new insights about their stability. The information, they say, could help to maintain a desired, integral property in nanoparticles used in electronic devices, where stability is important, or to design them so they readily condense into thin films for such things as inks or catalysts in electronic or solar devices.
