In this report, we study the role of solvent on controlling the aspect ratio of silver nanostructures during their growth. More specifically, a single-step preparation of different aspect ratio silver nanostructures (R, 1–100) is demonstrated in aqueous acetonitrile using 4-aminothiophenol (ATP) as a reducing as well as surface passivating agent, where the variation of the mole fraction of acetonitrile has a dramatic effect on the morphology. The combined effect of ATP concentration and solvent… CONTINUE READING
