Spontaneous fractal aggregation of gold nanoparticles and controlled generation of aggregate-based fractal networks at air/water interface.


Journal Article

The spontaneous fractal aggregation of as-prepared cetytrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB)-capped gold nanoparticles was found to happen at the air/water interface after spreading their chloroform solution on water surfaces. Aided by Langmuir-Blodgett techniques, these fractal aggregates can be interconnected with each other to form aggregate-based fractal networks.
