A study is conducted to demonstrate shape-persistent replica synthesis of gold/silver bimetallic nanoplates using tailored silica cages. A tailored silica cage is devised in which particle synthesis generates a replica particle resembling a seed. Advantage of this method is that the shape of replicated nanoparticles can be varied through initial choice of shape of the seed particles without limits. Extremely large number of micro and nanopores on silica, coupled with its high chemical/physical stability, allows various small materials, such as ions and molecules, to diffuse through silica.
