Core–shell Ag@Au nanoprisms are successfully synthesized through a surfactant-free seed-mediation approach by direct gold coating of silver nanoprisms with controllable Au shell thickness. The clean gold shell surface and tunable surface plasmon resonance of these core–shell nanoprisms enable straightforward further functionalization for a variety of applications.
