Size and Shape Control of Silver Nanostructures Studies into Icosahedron, Thick Prism and Flower-like Morphologies

The thesis research deals with the experimental study of nanoscale silver ranging from the synthesis of monodisperse clusters to morphology control and the tailoring of the optical properties of nanoparticles. The silver morphologies investigated include different types of prisms: flower-like platelets and icosahedra. Starting at atomic size control, small (
