Two methods are reported for the one-pot preparation of high concentrations of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) embedded throughout sodium polyacrylate hydrogels; this stabilises the AuNP in even extremely high ionic strength environments, and enables them to act as effective catalysts for the hydride-reduction of nitrophenols and of dyes, with zero order kinetics.
