We examine the structure of compact metal nanoparticles (NPs) forming polyhedral sections of face centered (fcc) and body centered (bcc) cubic lattices, which are confined by facets characterized by highly dense {100}, {110}, and {111} monolayers. Together with the constraint that the NPs exhibit the same point symmetry as the ideal cubic lattice, i.e. Oh, different types of generic NPs serve for the definition of general compact polyhedral cubic NPs. Their structural properties, such as shape…
