• Single-crystal Au microflakes modulated by amino acids and their sensing and catalytic properties.Li, M., Wu, X., Zhou, J., Kong, Q., & Li, C. (2016). Journal of colloid and interface science, 467, 115-120.
    Single-crystal Au microflakes with the planar area over 103 μm2 (i.e. being accessible to the human eye resolution) were synthesized in an environment-friendly route by directing two-dimensional growth of Au nanocrystals into macroscopic scales with amino acids as both reducing agents and capping agents.
