We demonstrate a simple one-step process for the synthesis of water-dispersed spherical gold nanoparticles using the multifunctional molecule oleyl amine (OLA) that electrostatically complexes with aqueous chloroaurate ions, reduces them, and subsequently caps the nanoparticles thus formed. The gold particles thus formed were of the fee phase and were fairly monodisperse with particular concentrations of capping molecules.
