Colloidal metal nanoparticles are of great interest because of their use as catalysts, photocatalyst, adsorbent and sensors and because of their application in optical, electronic and magnetic devices. Capping agents are widely used in the synthesis of colloidal nanocrystals, and their roles are generally as stabilizers. A heat-treatment method for the preparation of well-stable Pt-Sn complex is demonstrated using different capping agents such as mercaptosuccinic acid (MSA), mono ethylene glycol, polyacrylic acid, and poly (vinyl pyrrolidone) etc. The stability and interaction of Pt- Sn complexes with different capping agents were characterized by UV–via absorption spectroscopy. Pt-Sn bimetallic nanoparticles have been prepared and characterized by UV–via spectroscopy.
