Novel gold nanodogbones (GDBs) are successfully fabricated using a simple seeded mediated growth (SMG) method. The shapes of GDBs depend on the amount of added vitamin C solvent. The amount of vitamin C solvent was varied from 10 to 40 μl to investigate the influence of vitamin C solvent on the GDBs. It is found that the aspect ratios (R) of GDBs were in the range from 2.34 to 1.46, and the UV-vis absorption measurement revealed a pronounced blueshift on the longitudinal surface plasmon resonance (SPR) band from 713 to 676 nm. The GDBs were determined by x-ray diffraction (XRD) to be single-crystalline with a face-centered cubic (fcc) structure. The lattice constant calculated from this selected-area electron diffraction (SAED) pattern is 4.068 Å.
