Electron microscopy of the AuNPs. a SEM at magnification of × 80,000. b TEM showing dispersed particles of different sizes in a microscopic field. c A histogram showing particle size distribution of the AuNPs. Enlarged view of individual AuNPs showing different geometric shapes and their diagrammatic representations with dimensions. d Spherical (left) and rhomboidal (right) of small size range. e From left: hexagonal, equilateral triangular, rhomboidal, polyhedral, and isosceles triangular
