Crystallographically oriented triangular or hexagonal Au rings with micrometer-scale edge lengths and nanoscale thicknesses are successfully synthesized in aqueous solution. By using a Au 3+ precursor and commercially available neutral polymeric surfactant ((C 2H 4O) 23C 12H 25OH, Brij35), Au rings are generated in a single-step, one-pot synthesis.
