An aqueous-phase synthesis of gold nanotadpoles by using bilayer membranes as growth regulating factor is newly developed. The gold nanotadpoles are formed by photoreduction of Au(OH) 4 - in aqueous bilayer dispersion. The outgrowth of tails occurred from spherical nanoparticles, which are regulated depending on the photoirradiation time.
