Shape-controlled synthesis of Au nanocrystals is of paramount importance to their applications in plasmonics, catalysis, and nanomedicine. While the synthesis of Au nanocrystals enclosed by low-index facets has been greatly advanced over the past two decades, only limited progress has been made for their high-index counterparts. Here we report a robust route to the facile synthesis of Au trisoctahedral nanocrystals enclosed by high-index facets. Unlike the previously reported methods, our… CONTINUE READING
