Abstract

This letter aims to respond to the claim of Mortier and co-workers in "Synthesizing Gold Nanoparticles Using Honey in Basic Solution under Leidenfrost Conditions To Aid Students in Reliably Reproducing Observable Color Changes" concerning the difficulty of the experimental repetition of Elbahri and co-workers' concept. Here, we not only scientifically address this claim but also present some video links demonstrating and stressing the easiness of the experimental procedures and the high reproducibility of the outcomes.
