AbstractWe studied the aggregation of AuNP induced by small aromatic molecules under different conditions. In water, the aggregation was found to be difficult to control. Phase transfer of the particles into toluene by using oleylamine as a ligand allows for a more controlled and reliable synthesis. Using nonane-1,9-dithiol as a control, our experiments demonstrate that the molecular structure of the linker has a decisive influence on the aggregation. Aromatic dithiols yielded sphericaldoi:10.1515/zpch-2016-0865 fatcat:xzytmh27zbd2jgdgzvjulssxbi
