Gold nanoparticles were synthesised in toluene and stabilised by a fluorescent conjugated polymer (F8BT). The gold/conjugated polymer nanoparticles system was also found to be stable in dichloromethane (DCM), exhibiting both fluorescence (quantum yield = 14%) and a surface plasmon in organic solvents
