Non-spherical gold nanoparticles such as rods (short, long) (1,2), wires, cubes (3), nanocages (4), (multi-)concentric shells (5), triangular prisms (6-7), as well as other more exotic structures such as hollow tubes, capsules (6), even branched nanocrystals (8-9) have garnered significant research attention in the past few years. They exhibit unique and fine-tuned properties which either strongly differ or are more pronounced from those of symmetric, spherical gold nanoparticles. Their unusual… CONTINUE READING
