Abstract

Bimetallic nanoparticles: Au-Ag core-shell heterometallic nanorods and icosahedra can be prepared from Au decahedral seed particles using plasmon-mediated synthetic methods and adjusting the pH value of the solution (see picture). This method allows for the preparation of icosahedral nanostructures with an asymmetric metal distribution.
