Abstract

We use molecular-dynamics simulations to probe the experimentally observed aggregation of PVP-covered triangular Ag nanoplates to form 2D sheets in solution. We find lateral plate attachment is the most favorable aggregation pathway-consistent with experiment. The mechanism is general and suggests new processing strategies for creating 2D architectures in solution-phase syntheses. This journal is
