Abstract

A nanosynthesis scheme is demonstrated which renders excellent control of nanoparticle shape, size, and dispersity in a solution based synthesis process. The scheme, termed as percolative microcavity synthesis, involves the use of a granular medium with percolative microcavities which facilitate nearly similar grain size/shape dependent reaction zones limiting intrinsic growth inhomogeneities, enabling particle size/shape control. The viability of the process is demonstrated for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles by a plant extract based biological method as well as a chemical method.
