Abstract

A simple method for the preparation of stable colloidal suspensions of gold nanoparticles in silicate sols, silicate based films and monoliths is presented; organically modified sol-gel monomers containing amine functional groups are used for the stabilisation of Au ions and the metal nanocrystalline sol.
