Abstract

Stable Pd(0) and Rh(0) nanoparticles with small and narrow size distribution can be prepared from relative large and agglomerated transition-metal particles dispersed in 1-n-butyl-3methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ionic liquid by simple laser irradiation. The laser irradiation is a complementary method for the generation of stable metal colloids in ionic liquids and also for the regeneration of small-size nanoparticles that may result from their agglomeration after different applications.
