Paper Title:
Size Effect and Shape Stability of Nanoparticles
  Abstract

Nanoparticle research disciplines—chemical synthesis, applied physics and devices based on their physical-chemical properties, and computational physics—have been very active fields for the last 15 years or so, because of the potential and current applications in medicine, catalysis, energy storage, environment and electronics applications. This wide spectrum of disciplines and their applications keep metallic nanoparticles as one of the most promising nanostructures and their research as one of the cornerstones of nanotechnology. In this contribution we present a comprehensive and extended geometrical description for the most common shapes and structures for metallic nanoparticles, as well as experimental results for these geometries with some variations given by truncations.
