Rui Tang, Xue-Pin Liao, Bi Shi. Heterogeneous Gold Nanoparticles Stabilized by Collagen and Their Application in Catalytic Reduction of 4-nitrophenol. Chem. Lett. 2008: 834-835.
Heterogeneous catalyst containing gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) was prepared by direct precipitation of collagen of type I as the stabilization reagent. The composite is fibrous and the AuNPs are found to form patterns of long wires, short wires, and dispersed patterns on collagen. The catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol by NaBH4 in the presence of the composite was satisfactory.
