ABSTRACT
Triangular silver nanoplates, of different orientations, and other nanostructures were successfully synthesized using the Horizontal Vapor Phase Crystal (HVPC) Growth technique for antimicrobial purposes in this study. This finding demonstrates HVPC as an alternative and simple technique to synthesize ordered silver nanomaterials for antimicrobial study.
