  Commonly used seed-mediated method of gold nanorod synthesis has limitations like formation of by-products (stars, squares, dog-bones, platelets), slow but continuous growth during storage/ageing which adversely affects their homogeneity. Storage in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) ...  Read More
