Abstract

Silver and large gold nanoparticles are more efficient scatterers than smaller particles, which can be advantageous for a variety of single-particle-based sensing and spectroscopic applications. The increased susceptibility to surface oxidation and the larger surface area of these particles, however, present challenges to colloid stability and controllable bio-conjugation strategies. In this chapter, ligand syntheses and particle passivation procedures for yielding stable and bio-conjugatable colloids of silver and large gold nanoparticles are described.
