Poly(I-proline) (PLP) in the form II has been used for the facile synthesis of gold nanoparticles in water. The PLP had a dual role, as a reductant and a stabilizer of the formed Au nanoparticles (Au-NPs). The experimental conditions required for the formation of the Au-NPs has been thoroughly investigated. The nanoparticles obtained were among the smallest presented so far by polymeric materials. The mechanism of the formation of the Au-NPs has also been shown by various methods.
