    © 2015 American Chemical Society. Using Au chloride as precursor, Pt nanocrystals as seeds, ascorbic acid as a reducer, and CTAB as surfactant and complexing agent, extremely long Au nanorods have been grown. The influence of different parameters such as the composition of the seeds, the amount of Pt, or the type of Pt present in solution has been analyzed. These large Au NRs have been exhaustively characterized by (S)TEM, SEM and optical microscopy as well as UV-vis spectroscopy and their morphology correlated with the growth mechanism.
