We show that seeded growth can be applied to creating two-dimensional (2D) dendritic Au nanostructures on sample grids, which can be directly characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The 2D synthesis of highly consistent structures offers a novel mechanistic perspective on the aggregation of colloidal Au nanocrystals on a surface.
