Photoreduction of AuCl<SUB>4</SUB><SUP>−</SUP> ions in the presence of <I>o</I>-phthalaldehyde (<I>o</I>-PA) in water provides ultrathin gold nanosheets which show surprising morphological changes to saw-edged nanosheets, multipored sheets, and rounded nanotapes depending on the reaction temperature.
