Abstract:
In this letter, we report a quantitative analysis of how a Pt(II) precursor is reduced to atoms at different temperatures for the formation of Pt nanocrystals with different morphologies and sizes. Our results suggest that in the early stage of a synthesis, the Pt(II) precursor is reduced to atoms exclusively in the solution phase, followed by homogeneous nucleation to generate nuclei and then seeds. At a relatively low reaction temperature such as 22 oC, the growth of the seeds is dominated by autocatalytic, surface reduction that involves the adsorption and then reduction of the Pt(II) precursor on the surface of the just-formed seeds. This particular growth pathway results in relatively large assemblies of Pt nanocrystals. When the reaction temperature is increased to 100 oC, the dominant reduction pathway will be switched from surface to solution phase, producing much smaller assemblies of Pt nanocrystals. Our results also demonstrate that a similar trend applies to the seed-mediated growth of Pt nanocrystals in the presence of Pd nanocubes.
