Abstract

The rich plasmon resonance modes and local field enhancements of two-dimensional (2D) noble metal nanostructures have boosted their application in distinct areas like catalysis, photonics, medicine and sensing. Here, we develop a unique strategy for the controlled growth of asymmetric 2D gold nanostructures in aqueous media using graphene oxide as a template. By performing mild reduction of gold ions on the surface of Au seeds (∼2 nm) attached to graphene oxide nanosheets, the anisotropic growth of 2D gold nanostructures can be carried out through a simple procedure with a tunable control of the final size, shape and thickness, and consequently on their optical properties, without using surfactants.
