Alloying events in three-layer Au/Pd nanoparticles

Domingo Ferrer, Miguel Jose-Yacaman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


High-angle annular dark field (HAADF) imaging in the electron microscope has been exploited to reveal the internal structure of bimetallic palladium-gold nanoparticles, prepared using a polyol-mediated wet-chemical method and protected with poly(Nvinyl2-pyrrolidone) (PVP). Our observations revealed a three-layer structure in the domains of the bimetallic nanoparticles, exhibiting core-shell morphology. New insights were gained on the composition of the domains that involve intimate alloy of the monometallic elements.
