Abstract

Long multibranched gold nanoparticles have been synthesized in a very high yield through a facile synthesis combining two different capping agents. The stability of these materials over time has been tested and their characterization have been performed by diverse advanced electron microscopy techniques, with special attention paid to aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy in order to unambiguously analyze the surface structure of the branches and provide insights for the formation of stellated gold nanoparticles.
