The objective of this work was to develop a method to produce gold nanorods for radiotracer industrial applications.  The preparation of the radiotracer is divided into three steps: the first, the purification of gold shards; the second, the synthesis of gold nano seeds, and the third, the synthesis of gold nano rods
