Picky: The selective mass synthesis of stable, isolable, surfactant-free, single-crystalline Bi hexagons (see picture) is demonstrated by forceful electrodeposition on a Cu wire at room temperature by applying high current densities, high voltages and high electrolyte concentrations quite contrary to the usual electrodeposition methodologies. The material is promising for thermoelectric and catalytic applications.
