Recently, the research group led by Professor Zheng Nanfeng from College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering has successfully used X-ray to analyze the full structure of metallic nanoparticle which has the biggest size at present and the property of surface plasmon resonance, which makes significant headway in the synthesis and characterisation of noble metal nanoparticle. The results are published in Nature Communications (Nature Communications, 2016, 7, DOI: 10.1038/NCOMMS12809) with the title of Plasmonic Twinned Silver Nanoparticles With Molecular Precision.
