Cores and effect: Water-dispersible core–shell structures and heterostructures incorporating gold nanocrystals of different shapes (polyhedra, cubes, and rods) and a variety of transition metal sulfide semiconductors (ZnS, CdS, NiS, Ag2S, and CuS) are synthesized using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide-encapsulated gold nanocrystals and metal thiobenzoates as starting materials.
