Nanoscale materials are demonstrating new properties and promising applications with each passing day. The fabrication of ever more complex and precise nanomaterials represents a continuing drive in the fields of physics, chemistry, and biology. Template-based approaches provide an attractive method of producing new inaccessible materials by modifying and confining older...
The effects of volumetric size-control
techniques on the photoinduced conversion
of silver colloids to triangular nanoprisms
were examined. It was hoped that through
the application of size-control techniques
on photocatalyzed reactions, a new method
of controlling particle dimensions could
be established. Initial work focused on
optimizing the synthesis procedure in...
