In this study, metallic nanostructures were prepared on silicon substrates using organ-metal solutions by a heating process. The size and shape of the metallic nanostructures on the silicon substrates were investigated by two-dimensional and three-dimensional scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results suggest that the size and shape of metallic nanostructures can be controlled by the heating temperature. In addition, the XRD and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) measurement results suggest that the crystallinity and atomic components of metallic nanostructures can also be controlled by the heating temperature, and the boundary of the change is nearly 800 °C. The results also suggest that the oxidation mechanism may get affected by the heating temprature.
