Controlling of the size and/or shape of noble metal nanoparticles (NMNPs) is crucial to make use of their unique properties and to optimize their performance for a given application. Within the past decades, the development of wet-chemistry methods enables fine tailoring of the size and morphology of NMNPs. We herein devote this review to introduce the wet-chemistry-based methods for the size and shape-controlled synthesis of rhodium (Rh) NPs. We start with a summarization of the wet-chemistry-based approaches developed for producing Rh NPs and then focus on recent fascinating advances in their size- and shape-control in the aspects of kinetic and thermodynamic regimes depending on the synthetic conditions. Then, we use several typical examples to showcase the applications of Rh NPs with tunable sizes and shapes. Finally, we make some perspectives for the further research trends and development of Rh NPs. We hope through this reviewing effort, one can easily understand the technical bases for effectively designing and producing Rh NPs with desired properties.
