Nanosized gold particles were synthesized by microwave irradiation in a mixture composed of potassium tetrachloroaurate(III) n-hydrate, sodium citrate dihydrate and Tween 20. The synthesized gold particles were characterized by UV-vis spectrophotometer, scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray diffraction techniques. Using UV-vis spectroscopy, it was confirmed that gold nanoparticles act as a catalyst in the reduction of 4-nitroaniline with sodium borohydride to form 1,4-diaminobenzene. Additionally, we studied the kinetics of this reductive reaction in the presence of these gold nanoparticles under various conditions.
