We show that interactions between the electrode surface and the transition metal during the initial step of metal nanoparticle formation can be utilized to control the formation and size of metal nanoparticles deposited on a conducting surface. Pt nanoparticles formed on the PEDOS surface are of smaller size compared to the PEDOT surface.
