Hybrid nanoparticles of gold and silver can not only retain the beneficial features of both nanomaterials, but also possess unique advantages (synergism) over the other two types. Novel pseudospherical and anisotropic nanoparticles, bimetallic triangular nanoparticles, and core@shell nanoparticles were prepared by the different procedures for various applications and understanding both the particle evolution (nucleation) and nanoparticle anisotropy. Hybrid nanoparticles of gold and silver are considered to be low in toxicity, and exhibit facile surface functionalization chemistry. Furthermore, their absorption peaks are located in visible and near-infrared region. These nanoparticles provide significant plasmon tunability, chemical and surface modification properties, and significant advances in the growth into anisotropic nanostructures. The photoinduced synthesis can be used to prepare various (sub) nanoparticles and OD and 1D nanoparticles. Ostwald and digestive ripening provided narrower particle size distribution.
