    • Abstract


      Pt, Pd, Pt-Ag and Pd-Ag bimetallic nanoparticles were synthesized in ethylene glycol and glycerol using the microwave technique in the presence of a stabilizer poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP). It has been observed that PVP is capable of complexing and stabilizing nanoparticles. Mixed clusters were formed by simultaneous reduction of the metal ions. The clusters were characterized using UV-Vis spectra, XRD and dynamic light scattering. To understand the mechanism of formation of mixed nanoparticles, several experimental parameters such asin situ irradiation of mixed metal salts and mixing of individual sols were attempted.
