Gold nanoparticles encapsulated in porous carbon

Jinrui Guo, Kenneth S. Suslick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Gold nanoparticles encapsulated in porous carbon spheres with high surface areas (∼800 m2 g−1) have been synthesized by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP). The porous carbon-encapsulated gold nanoparticles exhibit excellent catalytic activity toward the reductions of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic nitroaromatics.
