Description: This is a micrograph showing the gold-coated silver chloride nanowires at the microscopic level. The nanowires, when decorated with gold nanoparticles, can have pollution-controlling properties; because gold nanoparticles create visible-light catalysis in nanowires.
Keywords: silver chloride • nanowires • gold • pollution • micrograph
