Nanostructured gold has shown itself useful for catalysis, energy harvesting, electronics, and other applications. With its performance closely tied to the specifics of the precious metal’s nanoscale structure, researchers have explored various ways of customizing how the material is prepared. A team led by Alexander Katz and Alexis T. Bell of the University of California, Berkeley, has come up with a synthesis method based on colloidal assembly of gold . . .
