    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Behavior of dodecanethiol-passivated gold nanoparticles immobilized into organic gels was investigated. Although these nanoparticles are quite stable and no significant changes are observed for months in solutions, growth of nanoparticle in the gel matrix was found by UV-Vis and TEM observation in a few days after the preparation.
