Precision preparation: A facile, one-step, polyol protocol has been developed to prepare monodisperse, single-crystalline Au–Cu bimetallic nanocubes. Through the careful adjustment of the reaction parameters, both the dimensions of the nanocubes (two examples with edge lengths of 23 and 5 nm are shown) and their gold and copper stoichiometry can be controlled.
