22_16b/2010Noble Metal Nanoparticles: (Adv. Mater. 16/2010)

Bottom-up colloid chemical synthesis has emerged as a powerful and economical design tool for morphology control in metal nanoparticles. The anisotropy of non-spherical noble metal particles leads to novel properties and therefore to new potential applications, ranging from catalysis to cellular imaging, label-free biosensing and photothermal therapy. On pages 1781 and 1805, Andrey Rogach and co-workers review the synthesis and properties of such nanoparticles.
