Abstract

We report a simple, yet general, approach to monodisperse MPt (M = Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn) nanoparticles (NPs) by coreduction of M(acac)2 and Pt(acac)2 (acac = acetylacetonate) with oleylamine at 300 °C. In the current reaction condition, oleylamine serves as the reducing agent, surfactant, and solvent. As an example, we describe in details the synthesis of 9.5 nm CoPt NPs with their compositions controlled from Co37Pt 63 to Co69Pt31. These NPs show composition-dependent structural and magnetic properties. The unique oleylamine reduction process makes it possible to prepare MPt NPs with their physical properties and surface chemistry better rationalized for magnetic or catalytic applications.
