Glucose mediated facile synthesis of well dispersed gold nanoshells

This invention relates to a method of synthesizing a nanoshell comprising a core and a shell surrounding said core comprising steps of (a) providing functionalized core particle (b) heating the functionalized core with a plurality of metal ions in solution in the presence of a reducing agent such that the metal ions reduce onto the functionalized core to form the nanoshell characterized in that the reducing agent is glucose.
