The synthesis of platinum(0) nanoparticles by decomposition of Pt <inf>2</inf>(dba)<inf>3</inf> under a dihydrogen or CO atmosphere and in the presence of heavily fluorinated stabilizers is described. Several techniques were used for the characterization of the obtained nanomaterials (TEM, HREM, WAXS and SEM-FEG) that organize into spherical or elongated superstructures made of small individual nanoparticles (ca. 2.5 nm). © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2009.
