Unusual corrosion process of gold nanoplates and the mechanism study.


PMID 20648310

Abstract

Herein we describe an unusual localized corrosion that initiates on large {111} surfaces and ends with the complete fragmentation of the gold nanoplates, which is expected to develop into a specific method for processing large metal nanomaterials into smaller ones with desired shapes.
