Au@Pd core shell nanoparticles (Au@Pd CSNPs) were successfully synthesized using a seed-mediated growth method. Firstly, a pale pink gold seed solution was used to produce a pale purple gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) core solution. Then, three series of Pd shell thickness using 20μ, 100 μL, and 500 μL of PdCl2 produced purple, brown, and deep brown of Au@Pd CSNPs respectively. A strong absorbance UV-Visible spectrum with peaks at 285 nm and 535 nm was identified for AuNPs formation. The disappearance of the peak at 535 nm was indicated the Au@Pd CSNPs formation. The electrochemical properties were examined in phosphate buffer pH 7 using cyclic voltammetry technique with boron-doped diamond (BDD) as working electrode showed a couple oxidation and reduction peak of gold at 0.67 V and at 0.33 V, respectively. The Au@Pd CNPs will be used for modification of BDD electrodes.
