Facile synthesis of Au–Ag core–shell nanoparticles with uniform sub-2.5 nm interior nanogaps

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile method was established to fabricate uniform nanogaps between a Au core and a Au–Ag alloy shell. The size of nanogaps is controllable due to fast dissolution of AgCl and AgBr in CTAB and the crystal growth of the shell on a designed template. These Au–Ag core–shell nanoparticles with uniform sub-2.5 nm interior nanogaps can be potentially used for various applications.
