Abstract

The synthesis and characterisation of gold-coated cobalt nanoparticles, as well as their chemically- and magnetically-induced self-organisation have been studied. Metallic core-shell nanoparticles were prepared using two different experimental techniques: bulk reductive precipitation, with average particles size ∼15 nm, and microemulsion confining method, with average particle size of ∼6 nm. The self-assembly of prepared nanoparticles on flat substrates was achieved by derivatising the substrate and particle surfaces with bifunctional organic molecules that attaches to both particles and substrates.

Examination of the self-assembled systems was carried out by a number of characterisation techniques including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-visible spectrophotometry (UV-VIS), and atomic force microscopy (AFM).
