Crystalline Au dendrites were formed by electrodeposition on a glassy carbon electrode from a solution of HAuCl4 containing cysteine. The Au dendrites possessed a hierarchical architecture with three-fold symmetry; they comprised trunks, branches, and nanorod leaves, which all grew along the ⟨111⟩ direction.
