Exploring synthetic strategies for the production of complex inorganic nanoparticles


Advances in nanoscience have been accompanied by improvements in the capabilities to deliver compositional and morphological control of materials. Syntheses of nanoparticles (NPs), where material science elements are addressed with organic chemistry precision techniques, are specially challenging and often difficult to understand, hence to control. This difficulty arises from the increased complexity of the mineralization mechanisms in which molecular precursors are transformed into NPs, along with their strong susceptibility to the reaction kinetics. Therefore, the persisting question is how to correlate the morphological transformations that take place in NPs during their formation with the number of overlapped fundamental processes and competing reactions that are involved.

This thesis dissertation present the development of reproducible methodologies for the production of high quality solid and hollow noble metal NPs and hybrid noble metal–metal oxide NPs (heterodimer and core@shell NPs); and, in addition, examine their optical, chemical and catalytic behaviour.
