Critical Concentrations and Role of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamine C) in the Crystallization of Gold Nanorods within CTAB/TOAB Micelles.

Growth of gold nanorods is investigated in the presence of ascorbic acid in an aqueous mixed micelle solution of hexadecyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) and tetraoctyl ammonium bromide (TOAB) through photochemical reduction of HAuCl4ยท3H2O using 300 nm Hg lamps. The role of the ascorbic acid conce...
