论文简介
By increasing the pH value of the reaction solution and introducing a small amount of ascorbic acid, Ag/
Au nanoparticles with small tips and two surface plasmon resonance (SPR) modes have been prepared.
The formation of the two SPR modes results from the different shell and core Au/Ag ratios, which relies
on the enhanced dealloying rate of the shell and the weakened cavitating rate of the core under high
pH conditions. Then, these Ag/Au nanoparticles have been used in the ultrasensitive detection of Hg 2+
and Pb 2+ based on the resultant absorption intensity decrease of peaks I and II, which originates from
the specific dissolution of Ag and the accelerated speed of the reaction between Na 2 S 2 O 3 and Au,
respectively. The results showed an excellent limit of detection (LOD) of 5 nM for Hg 2+ and 1.4 nM for
Pb 2+ , and linear ranges from 30 to 400 nM and from 3 to 180 nM, respectively. Meanwhile, we believe
that these bimetallic nanoparticles have widespread applications in sensing and modulating pH based on
the dealloying rate of the shell and the cavitating rate of the core which can be extended to the
synthesis of other dual-functional metallic nanoprobes.
