Photocovnersion of AgX (X = Cl, Br, I) to functional silver nanoparticle (AgNPs) is of both scientific curiosity and technological importance. Here we show that AgCl can be photoconverted to AgNPs within minutes via photoreduction in the presence of DNA. Our mechanistic studies reveal that the heterogeneous nucleation and growth of AgNPs on AgCl correlates well with the thermodynamic explanation in terms of a reduced interfacial energy barrier, and DNA serving as a template plays an essential role in controlling the morphology and size of the AgNPs. The resultant AgNPs are observed to be biofunctionalized, and exhibit photostable luminescence and DNA-specific surface-enhance Raman scattering (SERS) signature, allowing for DNA-directed recognition and dual-modal cell imaging. Furthermore, DNA-encapsulated Ag/AgCl nanostructures can be obtained through a short-term photoreduction. Their uses in plasmonic photocatalysis are demonstrated.
