Gold-plated gold: NAD(P)H cofactors mediate the catalytic growth of Au nanoparticles in the presence of AuCl4 and CTAB (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide; see picture). The process allows for the optical detection of the cofactors and the analysis of NAD(P)+-dependent biocatalyzed transformations in solutions and on surfaces.
