Abstract

Group VIII metal nanoparticles with variant morphologies were synthesized under a carbon monoxide atmosphere. The important roles of CO in determining the surface formation of growing particles were studied both by experiment and density functional theory (DFT) calculations, which suggest different growth mechanisms for these metals.
