Polygonal gold nanoplates are generated in situ in poly(vinyl alcohol) film through thermal treatment, the polymer serving as the reducing agent and stabilizer for the nanoparticle formation and enforcing preferential orientation of the plates. The rare pentagonal as well as the more commonly observed hexagonal, triangular and square/rectangle shapes are obtained by fine-tuning the Au/PVA ratio and the time and temperature of fabrication.
