Abstract

Attachment of organic molecules is usually accomplished through the thiol functionality, but it would be desirable to have alternatives. Herein we would like to report preparation of gold nanoparticles with diameter of a few nanometers and their modification by alkyl chains. Such functionalization was achieved by direct attachment of organic moieties present in organo-tin compounds. The modified nanoparticles are expected to be more stable than the thiolated ones thus providing broader field of use in the catalysis of chemical reactions.
