Cover story: Gold nanoparticles have fascinated scientists for decades. These exciting nanomaterials have found exciting applications in numerous fields such as catalysis, optics, sensing, and drug delivery. We have developed a novel green chemistry route for the synthesis of gold nanoparticles of controllable sizes. We used cacao extract to reduce gold chloride to metallic gold and stabilize the resultant nanoparticles. The capacity of cacao to reduce gold chloride is due to oxalic acid, one of the constituents of the natural mixture. We called these “chocolate gold nanoparticles”, since cacao is the main constituent of this delicious treat. View Paper here.
