    • Abstract

       

      Thermolysis of [Pt2 (𝜇-OR)2 (C8H12OMe)2] (R = Me or Ac) in hexadecylamine (HDA) at 210°C under argon atmosphere gave platinum nanoparticles which were characterized by XRD, EDAX and TEM analysis. Both spherical (∼ 10 nm) and rod-like (∼ 19 nm length with aspect ratio of 2.3) face centred cubic (fcc) platinum metal nanoparticles could be isolated. The thermogravimetric analyses of these complexes revealed that they undergo a single step decomposition leading to the formation of platinum metal powder.
