Ultrafast growth of dendritic gold nanostructures and their applications in methanol electro-oxidation and surface-enhanced Raman scattering

, : Ultrafast growth of dendritic gold nanostructures and their applications in methanol electro-oxidation and surface-enhanced Raman scattering. Journal of Colloid and Interface Science 354(2): 577-584

A simple and rapid solution-phase synthesis of dendritic gold nanostructures with hyperbranched architecture is demonstrated in this report. Further investigations revealed that the morphology of the synthesized sample depended on proper parameters such as reagent concentration, reaction temperature, reagent addition sequence and stir. Moreover, the dendritic gold nanostructures exhibited a good electrocatalytic activity toward methanol electro-oxidation. When compared with sea-urchinlike and flowerlike gold nanostructures which were prepared by varying the parameters of experiment, dendritic gold nanostructures showed the highest surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sensitivity using 4-aminothiophenol (4-ATP) as probe molecules. The dendritic gold nanostructures may find potential applications in catalysis, SERS and biosensor.

Genomic clones for 2 mRNAs, P-450PB-1 and P-450PB-1(ps), were isolated and sequenced. The mRNAs were found to be approx. 2 kb long, and have identical sequences except for one short region of high variability. The 2 short segments specific for the...
