Phosphine-capped nanoparticles for electrocatalysis
In this work, a new method of synthesizing gold-rhodium alloyed nanoparticles (Au-Rh NPs), stabilized by triphenylphosphine (PPh₃) ligands is reported. This method has only previously been used to synthesize monometallic ...
Localized surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy of gold and silver nanoparticles and plasmon enhanced fluorescence
This thesis presents spectroscopic studies of metallic nanoparticle localized surface plasmons and plasmon enhanced fluorescence. We investigated the dielectric sensitivity of silver nanoprisms to an external electric field ...
Synthesis and anticancer activity of water soluble porphyrin
As resistance to traditional chemotherapies increases, there is a concurrent need for novel therapies. Much work has been devoted the development of gold(III) treatments, however much of this work has been hampered by the ...
