Abstract

Ag-Pd nanobimetallic colloidal particles are prepared in a single step by a chemical reduction method. Organically modified aminosilicate is used as a supporting matrix as well as a stabilizing agent, to obtain very uniform, well-distributed bimetallic particles. These nanoparticles are found to be stable for several months in both the solid and the liquid phases. The structure of the bimetallic particles has been followed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. The distribution and the particle size are determined by transmission electron microscope and X-ray diffraction studies. Polymerization and condensation of the support silicate material have been confirmed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
