Abstract

Electroless synthesis and hierarchical organization of 1.4 nm Pd and Pt nanoparticles (NPs) on self-assembled Rosette Nanotubes (RNTs) is described. The nucleated NPs are nearly monodisperse and reveal supramolecular organizations guided by RNT templates. Interestingly, the narrow size distribution is attributable to unique templating behavior of RNTs. The resulting metal NP-RNT composites were characterized by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) was also performed to confirm the nature and composition of RNT-templated NPs.
