Oriented attachment mechanism of triangular Ag nanoplates: a molecular dynamics study

Author affiliations

Abstract

We use molecular-dynamics simulations to probe the experimentally observed aggregation of PVP-covered triangular Ag nanoplates to form 2D sheets in solution. We find lateral plate attachment is the most favorable aggregation pathway – consistent with experiment. The mechanism is general and suggests new processing strategies for creating 2D architectures in solution-phase syntheses.
