Metal nanoparticle formation in oil media using di(2-ethylhexyl) phosphoric acid (HDEHP).


PMID 18201711

Abstract

The metal ion extractant (HDEHP) that is commonly employed in liquid membrane extraction has been shown to stabilise Ag and Cu nanoparticles in oil media of size 5 and 10 nm, respectively. The particle are formed by reduction of the metal salts of HDEHP that are oil soluble and shown by SANS to form small reversed micelles of radius approximately 1 nm. The extractant is also effective at stabilising particles of similar size in an oil phase when the metal ion (e.g., AgNO3) is reduced in a coexisting aqueous phase.
