Abstract

A new form of Au3Cu1 hollow nanostructure was prepared by the reaction of Cu nanoparticles with HAuCl4. Following a course of aging, the biomineral botallackite Cu2(OH)3Cl nanoflowers were developed with the aid of Au3Cu1 hollow nanostructures at room temperature. It was proposed that the hollow nanospheres could serve as active centers for heterogeneous nucleation and mediated a mineralization process. Scanning electron microscopy and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy indicated that the nanoflowers are three-dimensional in appearance with a range of 500 nm - to 1 μm in size and made of several nanopetals with about 25 nm in thickness. In addition, we found that the shape separation could be achieved by using cationic cetyltrimethylammonium bromide to filter the different morphology spherical- and flowerlike structures due to the negative charge of hollow nanospheres. Both hollow nanospheres and nanoflowers presented antimicrobial activity toward Streptococcus aureus with MIC50 at 39.6 and 127.2 μg/mL, respectively.
