Pagination or Media Count:
The formation of metallic nanoparticles in Vycorregistered glass has been demonstrated via photoreduction of AgClO4 and NaAuCl4. Spectroscopic measurements are reported to confirm the formation of the nanoparticles. The chemical mechanisms of particle formation are presented and are supported by characterization of the formed metallic particles.
