A reliable method to obtain metallic nanoparticles in general is to reduce a metallic ion in presence of a capping agent. For a example, a traditional method to obtain gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) is to reduce a gold salt in presence of dodecanothiol. For example, here is a method to obtain Pd nanoparticles by thermal decomposition, still the precursor is a ...
