Abstract

In the present work, we report the photochemical synthesis of gold nanoparticles in N,N′-dimethylformamide by addition of a photocatalyst like thiourea-modified polyoxometalate (γ-SiW12O40). The polyoxometalate behaves as an electron relay. Reduction of the polyoxometalate takes place under UV irradiation followed by a transfer of electrons to the gold ions, leading to the formation of gold nanoparticles. The formation of the gold particles was monitored with time by UV–Vis spectrophotometry. The polyoxometalate also acts as a stabilizing agent and helps in controlling the size of the nanoparticles. The shape and size distribution was obtained from transmission electron microscopy studies. Spherical and monodisperse gold nanoparticles of ~10 nm size were obtained.
