Radiation-Induced Synthesis and Cryo-TEM Characterization of Silver Nanoshells on Linoleate Spherical Micelles

Abstract : We combine the self-assembly properties of amphiphilic molecules with the radiolysis method to produce specific sizes and shapes of metallic nano-objects. Radiolysis is used to synthesize core-shell structures consisting of nanometric linoleate spherical micelles as the core and silver as the shell. The validity of the technique is asserted by cryoelectron microscopy, which is an adequate technique for low density contrasts and core-shell structures. The shells are found to be homogeneous with a size of a few nanometers. Images are used to bring forward the hypothesis of the fabrication process.
