This work describes a rapid route to prepare monodispersed silver nanocubes. By adding a trace amount of sodium tetrahydridoborate and hydrochloric acid to the conventional polyon synthesis, the reaction time was significantly shortened from 16-26 h to 4-5 h, increasing both the rate of production and uniformly the shape of monodispersed nanocubes of 40; 60 and 70 nm in size. The synthesized Ag nanocubes have been characterized by UV-vis, TEM, and XRD. Our results show that the SERS techniquedoi:10.22144/ctu.jen.2016.042 fatcat:r4slyk3uj5dtvlmfu4ypcwdlca
