Noble metal nanoparticles with an impressive range of morphologies, such as rods, wires, stars, boxes, etc. can be produced by a colloid-chemical approach (see figure). This article reviews the recent progress in the colloid-chemical synthesis of nonspherical nanoparticles of a few important noble metals (mainly Ag, Au, Pd, and Pt). The article focuses on various factors that influence the particle morphology and the mechanisms of the nonspherical-shape evolution.
