Facile fabrication of noble metal nanoparticles encapsulated in hollow silica with radially oriented mesopores: multiple roles of the N-lauroylsarcosine sodium surfactant.


PMID 21660319

Abstract

A facile one-pot method was reported to fabricate noble metal nanoparticles encapsulated in silica hollow nanospheres with radially oriented mesopores, and the anionic amino acid surfactant, N-lauroylsarcosine sodium, played multiple roles: reducing agent, stabilizer, emulsion droplets and mesopore template.
