Abstract  Gold (Au) nanocage@SiO2 nanoparticles are prepared by a novel approach. The silver (Ag) nanocube@SiO2 structure is synthetized firstly. Next, the method of etching a SiO2 shell by boiling water is adopted to change the penetration rate of AuCl4- through the SiO2 shell. AuCl4- can penetrate through silica shells of different thickness values to react with the Ag nanocube core by changing the incubation time. The surface plasma resonance (SPR) peak of synthetic Au nanocage@SiO2 can be easily tuned into the near-infrared region. Besides, CdTeS quantum dots (QDs) are successfully connected to the surface of Au nanocage@SiO2, which testifies that the incubation process does not change the property of silica.
