Gold nanoparticles stabilized with a thin layer of post-functionalizable calixarenes were prepared through the reductive grafting of a calixarene-tetra-diazonium salt. These particles show exceptional stability towards extreme pH, F−, NaCl, and upon drying. Post-functionalization of the calix-layer was demonstrated, opening the way to a wide range of applications.
