A facile, one-step self-assembly of polymer nanoreactors is reported for the fabrication of uniform PEGylated gold nanoparticles. Nanoreactor assembly occurs within milliseconds and gold nanoparticles are produced within minutes at room temperature. The presented approach enables continuous synthesis of size tunable gold nanoparticles with tailorable surface chemistry.
