We synthesized AuPt alloyed nanoparticles in colloidal solution by a one-pot procedure based on synchrotron x-ray irradiation in the presence of PEG (polyethylene glycol). The exclusive presence of alloyed nanoparticles with fcc structure was confirmed by several different experiments including UV–vis spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The composition of the AuPt alloyed nanoparticles can be varied in a continuous fashion by simply varying the feed ratios of Au and Pt precursors. The nanoparticles exhibited colloidal stability and biocompatibility, important for potential applications.
