Our new approach using centrifugal force provides a simple and foolproof method for the phase transfer of metal nanoparticles to organic solvents. The centrifugation following functionalization by thiol-containing molecules on the metal nanoparticles in water pushed the metal nanoparticles down to the chloroform compulsorily.
