Title: METHODS OF PRODUCING COBALT NANOPARTICLES AND HOLLOW GOLD NANOSPHERES AND KITS FOR PRACTICING SAME
Abstract:
Provided are methods of producing cobalt nanoparticles (Co NPs). The methods include combining a cobalt salt, a capping agent, and a reducing agent, under Co NP synthesis conditions including a temperature selected to produce cobalt nanoparticles of a pre-selected diameter, where the temperature and pre-selected diameter are inversely related. In certain aspects, the methods further include producing hollow gold nanospheres (HGNs) using the cobalt nanoparticles as scaffolds. Also provided are cobalt nanoparticles and hollow gold nanospheres (HGNs) produced according to the present methods. Kits that find use in practicing the methods of the present disclosure are also provided.
