Colloidal Synthesis of Nanoparticles: from Bimetallic to High Entropy Alloys

Abstract : At the nanometric scale, the synthesis of a random alloy (i.e. without phase segregation, whatever the composition) by chemical synthesis remains a not easy task, even for simple binary type systems. In this context, a unique approach based on the colloidal route is proposed enabling the synthesis of face-centred cubic and monodisperse bimetallic, trimetallic, tetrametallic and pentametallic nanoparticles with diameters around 5 nm as solid solutions. The Fe-Co-Ni-Pt-Ru alloy and its subsets are considered which is a challenging task as each element has fairly different physico-chemical properties. Nanoparticles are prepared by temperature-assisted co-reduction of metal acetylacetonate precursors in the presence of surfactants. It is highlighted how the correlation between precursors' degradation temperatures and reduction potentials values of the metal cations is the driving force to achieve a homogenous distribution of all elements within the nanoparticles.
