Highly monodisperse amine-protected palladium nanoparticles are synthesized by liquid-phase reduction in the presence of an amine and a carboxylic acid. Their sizes are controlled between 2 and 5 nm using homoepitaxial growth. These palladium nanoparticles are obtained in large-scale synthesis, and are applicable as structural units for functional materials.
