Abstract

A nonionic reverse-micelle based approach is described for fabrication of a network structure consisting of chain-like arrays of gold nanoparticles followed by coating process with a uniform silica layer using a sol-gel method. The hexadecyl-poly (ethylene oxide-15) ether (designated C16E 15) is used as a template for this study. The effects of a water-to-surfactant molar ratio (w) as well as the concentration of tetraethyl orthosilicate ([TEOS]oil) are investigated on the resulting organized structures.
