Gold colloids modified with p-sulfanylphenol self-assembled monolayers provide novel nanoscopic seeds for the nucleation of calcium and strontium carbonate from aqueous solution. The morphologies of the crystalline precipitates are very different from what can normally be obtained through templated crystallization on flat surfaces.
