Combination of chemical reduction of tetrachloroaurate by ascorbic acid and subsequent ultraviolet photoirradiation resulted in the quick generation of gold nanorods quantitatively, with appreciable shape changes as the reaction proceeds.
Anisotropic and controllable silver shell formation on gold nanorods was realized in a micellar solution of hexadecytrimethylammonium chloride. Uniformity of the anisotropic Au-Ag core-shell particles contributes separation of four extinction bands. The ability to manipulate the shapes and sizes of these nanoparticles offers a wide-range control of the(More)
Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SALDI-MS) indicated AgBr2-, which adsorbed on gold nanorod surfaces, was a key material to control the anisotropic growth of gold nanorods.
Photochemical synthesis of gold nanorods (NRs) in a micellar solution of hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) was triggered by photoreactions of ketones. Photoexcitation of gold ions and silver bromide clusters ((AgBr)n) in the absence of ketones did not produce NRs. The initial products of the photoirradiation were probably ketyl radicals, which then(More)
