Star-Fruit-Shaped Gold Nanoparticles
Researchers continually seek to craft nanoparticles with complex, exotic structures to produce unique properties. Now a duo of chemists has made gold nanoparticles that look like star fruit (Langmuir, DOI: 10.1021/la300218z). Eugene R. Zubarev and Leonid Vigderman of Rice University thought that combining star shapes and rod shapes into one particle could lead to ideal materials for chemical detection techniques such as . . .
