Oleylamine-capped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with sizes ranging from 5 to 13 nm and narrow size distributions (<10%) are synthesized by using a seeded growth approach. Water-solubility is achieved by using a UV-induced ligand exchange approach, resulting in transfer from the organic to an aqueous phase.
